Tesla grabs top Microsoft HoloLens designer
Tesla has snagged one of Microsoft’s top designers, with former HoloLens industrial designer Andrew Kim leaving to join the electric car company. Kim will take up the role of Lead Designer at Tesla, his LinkedIn confirms. A graduate of the Art Center College of Design, the designer spent three and a half years at Microsoft.

Most recently, his time there involved work on Microsoft’s HoloLens headset, the augmented reality wearable with which the company is pushing Windows Holographic. However, Kim was also heavily involved with the design of the Xbox One S before that. In a since-removed post about the console, he described the brief for the slimmer hardware as being “a more friendly and universal product that doesn’t evoke traditional ‘gaming’ cues” in its aesthetic.
