Google Creative Lab is inviting applications for The Five – a one year paid program, that is offered to only five people, where you work on things that matter – which could be big, small, and ideally the first of its kind at Google.
Former ‘Fivers’ have been designers, filmmakers, developers, and the occasional wildcard, who have had the chance to work with some of the most talented people around. Amongst other things, the current Five have helped design a website to recruit the next Five, that looks like this:
The idea is to see what prospective applicants for The Five, can do with some shapes, a text bar, and plain white page. Write it, design it, code it, break it. In their words – “consider this the cover letter to your application”.
Obviously, we soon had a bunch of people coming up with the most creative responses they could come up with, for their application.
