Geneva Auto Show is ready and this morning the first official rendering of Sergio Concept car by Pininfarina appeared on the web.
Fabio Filippini, VP Corporate Design at Pininfarina, published it on his Facebook page, it is useless to say that it is going to be a real beautiful concept car as this rendering shows.
I think that what is new at Pininfarina this year is the design approach, looking at the car illustration we find a very good balance between soft volumes and bone lines (like on the side section and on the froont hood), the graphic bicolor choice is excellent for breaking the masse and giving a “forward” feeling to the car with a very dynamic effect, I am sure that all details are very well designed too.
In conclusion this rendering gives us a strong will to see and discover the real concept in Geneva!
Ferdinand Alexander Porsche dies at the age of 76, today we lost the creator of Porsche 911 mith. Ferdinand Porsche died in Austria thursday.
The 911 creation became the cult car from Porsche, in early 1960 Ferdinand headed the Porsche design studio working on a sleek sporty car that still today, after 7 editions, keeps the main design philosophy with a strong technological development.
Today we lost a real talent.
Wacom just came out with its new technological drawing tool called Inkling.
Inkling is a new system to interact with a computer to use your sketches for anytype of use, it is a drawing device made of a digital pen with which yiu really sketch on paper and another element with wich you can transfer your drawing on your computer for further use (modifie your drawing , change colors, give effects and send it or whatever…)
To me Inkling can become the very first technological tool for all young design students, the reason is simple: Inkling makes you draw for real on paper!
In other words we often say that everybody runs on computer to use sophisticated softwares for special drawing and illustration effects…forgetting to take the time to learn how to draw correctly on paper. Now, thanks to this new system by Wacom, you will start drawing on paper before going to rework your drawing on your computer .
Lets monitor how Inkling will be appreciated…I believe very well!
