Last summer designer Andrew Kim’s vision for “The Next Microsoft” got a lot of traction online — including on The Verge — for its aggressively minimal rebranding of the company across platforms. The next month Microsoft unveiled its actual new logo , but that doesn’t mean it didn’t take note — Kim just announced that he’s been hired by the company, which got in touch after seeing his designs. While “countless” other companies apparently followed suit, Kim says that Microsoft was the most obvious choice, and promises to create his “greatest work ever” when he starts in the summer.
