Renault Design Academy India an Excellent Team Effort

Design India support team with Luciano Bove and 4 Interns

The Renault Design Academy India in Chennai Studio is almost over, one month ago we celebrated the final presentation with our 4 interns Gautam, Aditya,Nikhil & Smitesh presenting their scale models to Renault Design Management including Mr Patrick Lecharpy Head of R&D Design studio and India Design Operations.

As we already announced Renault Design proposed to all 4 interns a permanent designer job offer, we will see very soon who will accept the offer.

A Team Effort

However, today I would like to talk about the Renault Design support team from France and from India because it is clear that the Design Academy has been a success thanks to all the people that gave a part of their  know-how to the 4 interns during those seven months.

In Chennai Studio our Alias virtual modeler team composed by:  Nagaraj, Tom, Fijoy, Kaushalendra & Debashish all managed by Nahusha. Our two designers from Mumbai Design Studio Mishu, Prajakta .

The scale models were realized in our local model shop managed by Marc Bentivoglio and his team, to accomplish all model making we also had the support from  General Manager Mr Philippe Ponceau’s managers Frederique Cheze and Lionel Petit and Arul. Not to forget  Alain Lonay’s advices and tips (India Design Director).

From France Luciano Bove had a team of 10 professional selected designers to be the trainers travelling with him to India, every trainer made 2 trips respecting a given schedule and they were: Anton, Jean-Philippe, Moneet, Eduardo, Marco, Emmanuel, Jennifer, Julie and Riccardo.

Luciano Bove travelled every month to India to follow up the special internship supervising content & quality and naturally sharing a part of his know-how to the 4 interns. It was not just about sketching and ideation or illustration, it was about presenting your work, giving value to your project, using the right storytelling, learning how to work with an Alias modeler, how to interact with colleagues to manage the daily activities, how to be in control of your project to produce the requested quality.

Special thanks to the HR Dpt in Renault India for their support.

In France we cannot forget Paul Stamper the anchor at LIVENEWS videos on the official Facebook page, often Paul & Luciano had a 10 minutes Livenews from Renault Design Center telling about the Design Academy India development, sometimes they also had few trainers as guests with anecdotes and funny stories. However, stay tuned because the Facebook page is alive and soon will have new content 😉

Special thanks to Laurens van den Acker for giving the OK to make this project, and thanks to Patrick Lecharpy for being the person that generated this project asking Luciano Bove to write down the scenario and to manage the organization and its realization.

At the end you understand it has been a Team work, a big project opened to the public (first time from a design studio) via Facebook with photos, news, videos, episodes…more than 4300 followers and more than 10000 views for the last Episode #8 (click to watch).

 

What is next?

This is a great question which cannot have an answer today.

I can advice all of you to stay tuned and concentrated on the official Facebook Page because there are some excellent news soon to come with new photos and videos 😉 it is not over yet …. so just stay tuned!
