Incredible but it is true: this blog has been almost stolen!

Hi dear friends,
yesterday I was searching on the net and I found a blog that is a perfect copy of all my content from this blog Car Design Education Tips!
To see click ” Luciano Bove’s copy” and check out!
I find this really stupid because Google detects automatically all copy of text from originals downgrading the fake blog, to be honest if the thief had published linkbacks on each stolen article I wouldn’t mind…but he/she did not!
Anyway from today you my followers and supporters and occasional readers know that there is someone copying this blog and that MY blog is always the original one written by me Luciano Bove a real designer behind published posts.
Thanks for taking notes!

Luciano Bove Car Designer new profile on Facebook

 Dear friends,

beginning August I decided to open a new page on Facebook about my professional profile. I did it for 2 reasons the first is that not all of you or others go look around on Linkedin where I have already my professional profile, the second is because many of you ask me if I am still a car designer or other infos regarding my professional experiences.

This is normal, I write a lot about advices and tips on car design education and for some of you it is not so easy to know more about me. So who am I?

Now a new page on Facebook is open with some detailed infos about me, some links of interviews I had the pleasure to have, articles I wrote published on other sites and also photos about me on the job (naturally only stuff legally publishable) and some of my old sketches.
You will also find infos about my old design school activities as teacher and latest workshops I did.

I hope you like this initiative and I really hope you will all become fans of this page and that you will spread the word to collect as many fans as possible đŸ™‚
