The new Lada X-CODE concept came out and some of the original sketches have been released to the Press.
I wanted to show this one in particular because of its excellent quality, the author of these sketches is car designer, and Lada Design studio Chief in Moscow, Raphael Linari.
Raphael is an ex student of mine during my teaching in Torino before going to France, and I kept a beautiful souvenir of Raphael’s school time because of his talent and most of all his deep dedication in accomplishing his mission to become a car designer.
He made quickly great progress and got his first internship at Ford in Germany,once he graduated it was easy for him to find a job. After many years we became colleagues in Renault, small world!
Today Raphael is the Lada Studio Design Chief in Moscow and works with design director Steve Mattin.
