Electrek has learned of an important hire for the electric vehicle startup Faraday Future (FF). The company, which has been growing its design team while working on its first production vehicles, hired Jin Won Kim, a 15-year veteran of Toyota’s Calty Design Research studio, as its new Exterior Chief Designer.

He will be working under Richard Kim, Faraday Future’s Head of Design and the former BMW designer responsible for the BMW i3 and i8.

Jin Won Kim is a graduate of the ArtCenter College of Design, like his new head of design, and he had a long career at Toyota’s Calty Design Research studio in Newport Beach, California, where the Japanese automaker develops its exterior styling.
