Objective of this initiative is to select some of the best talents from design schools and form them with a very close to reality working program, the 2 best at the end will be offered a real designer job contract.

Free-hand Sketching is Important!

Sketching free-hand showing excellent skills & talent is extremely important to be a designer.

In a Design Process, to develop a project, sketching is the first important step to make, drawing on paper our ideas (ideation stage or brainstorming step) will give any designer a passional and fun way to look for ideas and also to do it in a more efficient way in terms of timing. If we know how to draw it will be easier to see on paper our ideas.

Any project has its Design Process and Design Planning (how long will it take to make the project according to company’s time to market plan); to perform correctly every step of this process has a given time that we (designers) must respect.

You understand that if you do not sketch well or think that you can easily jump steps to go directly to sketch modeling you are making a big mistake! The reason is simple: it will take you a lot longer to respect the Design Process Timing (specially in Car Design).

What Age to Get into Car Designers’ Market? Some Tips.

The Car designers’ market changed a lot in the last 20 years thanks to many new design schools popping out as mushrooms around the world. How this is affecting the car designer market?

It is clear that today the hiring age is lower than some years ago. A young designer out of school is hired at the age of 21/23 years old, this is the reason why the age factor is very important to get into a car design studio. Naturally a real talent will always have his/her chance even if older…but it remains an exception.

Car Illustration in Photoshop Tutorial by Alan Derosier

Alain Derosier is a French young designer working in China. Today looking at his blog I found this nice Photoshop tutorial that I am happy to publish here to show it to you.

As you can see Alan starts from a free-hand simple sketch that already has the right proportions, perspective, line quality and composition on the page. The wheels are very well done following the perspective.

What really is strong in this illustration is the control of its Focal Point (front wheel/hood/ground) with the light effect which is driving our attention to it first before admiring the rest of the illustration. Reading from left to right.

The balance between the light and shadow is perfect and the color treatment, too.

Enjoy!
