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.

To become a designer you need Talent!

Talent is a necessary quality to become a designer.

We are born with talent, it is part of our inner part, of our soul, it is in our DNA, sometimes we have it because of family heritage, and sometimes it just happens.

Not everybody has talent, most people are born without. However; growing up and working hard at school or at something people can learn how to do things very well.

Now if we can be very good at something why is talent so important? Why do we use the expression “…he/she is such a talent!” what does it really mean?

If we search for the word “talent” in any Dictionary we will find the following definition:

A special natural ability to do something well, or people who have this ability” (Cambridge Dictionary)

The point is: we all can do something really well, but only few talented people will do the same thing making the difference! Giving emotions! There are the great executors and the great creators.

Car Design and Design fields in general concentrate a good number of talented creative people, most serious design schools around the globe make entry selections interviews for their students’ candidates. The reason is simple: the selection will help schools to get the best and most talented future students. It is a human investment.

Who has talent will have a good chance to make an extra step, she/he will know before other students what to do how to do and how to be successful. That special natural ability is the key to the necessary extra step that will lead to an exploit!

How do we recognize if someone has talent?

When I see portfolios I can see the difference between who has a row talent and who does not have it, I can see the difference between sports car lovers who are confusing their passion for speed, engines and bolts Vs Car Design fever. I can see who deserves a good design school and who should just try a different field.

Talented people usually work a lot on their own to produce great amount of sketches because they are obsessed with improvement and their designs attempts. They are never happy with their work, they keep on trying. They do not give up. The search constantly for the new brilliant idea.

To become a good car designer you need that kind of talent!
