Tesla It has always been famous per intuitive interface and sometimes definitely funny – as for the function of flatulenze on command – and all this was possible thanks to Pawel Pietryka, a former art director at Apple who joined Musk’s project in 2016 and became Head Of User Interface Design, a an extremely important role in a company like Tesla which designs the cars around their central screen, now horizontally also on the new Model S and Model X thanks to the 2021 restyling.
According to Pietryka’s LinkedIn profile, his farewell to Tesla took place a month ago when he decided to found his own design studio called Moderne Grafik Anstalt ed his place in the Palo Alto company was taken by Ben Cunningham, a former Facebook employee who has worked under Elon Musk since last year.
Come portfolio of his experiences, Pietryka also has – rightly – inserted some projects made for Tesla and in one of these you can see clearly the Tesla Cybertruck interface, never seen before and thus the futuristic aspect of the control panel of the controversial vehicle is revealed; the characters in fact have a particular font that is decidedly different from that seen so far on the cars of the Californian brand and although the presentation took place in 2019, the first deliveries will not take place before the end of 2021 or the beginning of 2022.
The interface shown is not necessarily the final one, yet seeing it so clearly gave us the impression that it is spot on for the huge futuristic pickup presented by Musk; if that’s not enough, a prototype interface for Tesla FSD is also shown on Pietryka’s portfolio – Full Self Driving – definitely different from what is seen nowadays with the beta and much more similar to what standard Autopilot has accustomed us to.
In short, Pietryka will also have gone from Tesla but managed to make traplerare – accidentally – far more than the brand wanted; we hope that there are no legal repercussions for this and that Tesla does not change his mind regarding the designs that we have been able to see as they seem perfect to us.
