Lots of young people are searching every year for Design schools and very often they do not know which one to chose. In This video some suggestions & tips to help you about Design school mission & methodology.
a new video about a car sketch tutorial made in 3 steps. This time I used a felt tip pen for Step 1 for a rugh linework and proportion study in side view. Step 2 is done with a light marker thin point making all necessary corrections, and step 3 is done with a blue soft color pencil Faber Castel or Prismacolor to apply a final quality finish giving enphasis to line quality and shading. A light background to frame well the composition on page.
Enjoy the video!
How many times did you think how to show your works to gain visibility in internet? How many times you hoped to be seen by Design professionals? How many times you hoped to be contacted by one of them or to contact them?
Social Networks like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Linkedin, Youtube, and websites are a great opportunity to communicate with the world.
You do something and you can share it with anybody, what is delicate is “how” you do it! In some disciplines like Design (specially Car Design) you have to be smart enough to communicate and share your works without provoking a negative reaction. It is about your behaviour.
In my video I give few tips & suggestions to avoid most common mistakes.
To manage a car design project is not easy because it is a complex task. You need a vision, a strategy and most of all you need the right “attitude'” to do it.
In this video I try to explain what does it mean to have that right attitude to manage a car design project. What does it take to impress the right mood to the team to cooperate all together.
Team building and problems solving are important, but the way you as manager work and interact with the team members is more important to achieve the mission.
How many times we hear discussions about Design or Style? Designers or Stylists? More than 30 years ago (and unfortunately sometimes still nowdays) the word Design was not really used as today, it was all about Style or Styling and designers were called stylists. However, was it right?
My position is clear: if you have a creative role in a Design Dept of a company (any company) you are a “designer” and you are working on a Design project. Design is the key word and not Style which, to me, is very reductive. Designers (and Design in general) are people that went to Design schools (and not Styling schools) to learn how to use their creativity to make a better looking and functional product. It is the combination of both aspects that give to this professional cathegory the definition as designers.The ability to put together the beauty with the inclusion of hard points problem solving. Design comes from “designare” to make a project!
In this video lecture I explain it better enjoy!

When my friend Serge Cosenza , car designer at Renault Design, told me he was working on a new wrist watch design I thought he was crazy. Serge told me he was going to make a sort of Start-Up company to promote his product designed and realized by him all Made in France. I thought he probably needed a doctor and fast!
Well you know what? I was wrong, he was really serious to the point he accomplished his mission: to design, built and sell his wristwatch he called Ilegal Paris!
This is an incredible beautiful story, a designer that for several years thinks how to produce and sell his own designed watches. Working from early sketches to assembly process, from materials to marketing and promotional activities. A lot of hard work made by him and few more.
In the photo you can see one of the available designs, so please visit the website by clicking Ilegal Watches Paris and discover more about Serge Cosenza and his creations.
