I know that some of you will not agree with my position about Engineering students getting a Master in Transportation Design and feeling ready for a car design job. As you know I do not believe it is the right school career plan to become car designers.
Of course, we have several exceptions, great designers that come from Engineering and Architecture universities and some of them are today in important design studios. Flavio Manzoni VP Design at Ferrari Design is a very well known example, brilliant designer coming from an Italian Architecture university
However, those cases are really few. They are exceptions, to become designers or car designers you need a Design school Bachelor.
To become a car designer means to find the right design school (here a list) and follow specific types of courses. It is not just about going to a University, it is about a particular method and way of thinking.
The Car Design Portfolio is a hot topic in Design education, and during my last LIVE CHAT on my YouTube channel I talked about it. The objective in this video lecture is to give lots of advices and tips to you so that you remain concentrated on the key factors to make a professional portfolio.
We must keep in mind that quality and creativity are the most important aspects of any portfolio, with quality I also mean skills.
How many mistakes should we be aware of? Many, and in this video I explain how to avoid some of them.
For those that love tutorials, sketching cars and also a very good online teacher here we have Marouane a designer that turned his professional life to help young car lovers to sketch and draw cars. Read his story.
I started a series of LIVECHAT on my YouTube channel to talk about several topics regarding our beloved Car Design world, here the last video about the Digital Modeler and the strategic role he/she can have in a design team.
Often we talk about designers and not about other key roles in a Design team. For sure, the Digital Modeler is a very strategic one necessary in any Design Process.
Enjoy and if you wish write your questions or comments.
Too many people still asking about what type of school career plan adopt to become a car designer, and too many still believe that the best way is to start an Engineering University to shift later to a Master in Car Design. This is wrong!
In this video I try to explain why, please check it out!
