I know that some of you will not agree with my position about Engineering students getting a Master in Transportation Design and feeling ready for a car design job. As you know I do not believe it is the right school career plan to become car designers.
Of course, we have several exceptions, great designers that come from Engineering and Architecture universities and some of them are today in important design studios. Flavio Manzoni VP Design at Ferrari Design is a very well known example, brilliant designer coming from an Italian Architecture university
However, those cases are really few. They are exceptions, to become designers or car designers you need a Design school Bachelor.
To become a car designer means to find the right design school (here a list) and follow specific types of courses. It is not just about going to a University, it is about a particular method and way of thinking.
Too many people still asking about what type of school career plan adopt to become a car designer, and too many still believe that the best way is to start an Engineering University to shift later to a Master in Car Design. This is wrong!
In this video I try to explain why, please check it out!
Car Designer profession is a very fascinating one, I am not writing it because I am a designer, but because it really is. It is about a creative job around the automobile, so it is about art and passion, love and sacrifice.

One year ago I had the pleasure to be contacted by Cardesignnews.com to write few articles about “How to Become a Car Designer”.

Watching this video we can all understand why and how a project is made, it is not a question of simple style. It is a deeper look into a problem solving The congested cities in China & the enemy N°1 the traffic!
This Concept called Reds EV is one of the answers, not the only one, however it is a realistic good answer.
The concept thinking is to start from the inside. The passengers’ life is the priority, an easier life onboard even if stuck into a traffic jam. It is the interior architecture that will define the exterior shape, the openings (side doors and back door) are important to help for better ergonomics, at so on.
The Design thinking process is the key of this project not its style and I guess it was not meant to be the most good looking car in the world, but the vehicle with real answers to a real problem.
