Luciano Bove's Lecture on Car design at University of Architecture of Palermo Italy

Dear friends,

as announced few weeks ago I recently had the chance to give a lecture on Car Design and Innovation to the students of University of Architecture in Palermo city Italy.

Fareuniversità, a cultural students' association, represented by Salvatore Gattuso (President) and Luigi Zaffuto & Prof. Benedetto Inzerillo invited me for this seminar event focused on Car Design and the designer role.

It has been great feeling to see so many students attending and so curious about Design and Car Design. It is clear that Italian Universities should offer a better organization to teach how to improve students' skills in terms of graphic and management. Students showed lots of  interest about all car sketches images and also what design process we apply to make a project.

Prof. Benedetto Inzerillo is a teacher but most of all a Yacht designer with lots of experience and a strong passion for car design too. It is thanks to his passion that students can study and make Automotive Design thesis, some of them were not bad at all.

Thank you to the school for this beautiful day spent with the students!

Dear friends,

it is important to give a look at what happened back in the 50's & 60's in terms of Car Design creativity.
Here a car sketch by Loewy of the Avanti 1963, this project was done in a short time and with a very young designers team led by John Ebstein.

This Coupé by Ken Vendley 1959 shows how at that time designers were looking at the future. In their techniques we see the old way of sketching done with pencils markers color paper and lots of skills and talent.

Harry Bradley's sketch (1968) is excellent, Harry has been my teacher at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena and I still remember his demos and tutorials done with a 2H pencil.

Talent & Creativity.
