The Google employee who died while attending the Cannes Lions advertising festival earlier this week has been identified as James Howard, a member of Google’s marketing team in the UK.
Howard, who was 29 years old, was hit by a taxi on Sunday night, the first day of the week-long event.
The news was reported earlier by the London Evening Standard, and has been confirmed by Google.
One of the recent projects Howard worked on, a 3D interactive tour of London’s famous Abbey Road Studios, won a design award the Cannes Lions festival on Wednesday.
