Pinterest filled the role of lead product designer by making an acquisition.
The company announced that it scooped up design application Curator and named the app’s founder, Daniel Nordh, lead product designer.
Forbes reported that Nordh will focus on saving, content retrieval and overall site appeal with an eye toward international users, adding that he is working out of Pinterest’s San Francisco headquarters.
Pinterest co-founder and chief creative officer Evan Sharp said in a statement:
Building the world’s catalog of ideas for every interest requires deep empathy with people all around the world. Daniel is a talented designer with a rich background in architecture, graphic design, music and technology. His experience building an app that makes it easy for people to save and present visual content makes him a great addition to our highly diverse design team.
I love building tools that help people be more creative in their life and felt instantly aligned with Evan and Pinterest’s vision to help people discover and do what they love.
