Discover Automobile Design

This workshop will explore contemporary approaches to car design. It will teach the fundamentals of design and style and how they link to the function of a vehicle. This course will begin by exploring car design history and branding, and will look at the future of the industry and will then go on to develop practical design skills. During the workshop you will: create car design concepts from a brief, learn how to design from different perspectives; learn how to present your project ideas to others, learn about style and function in automobile design and discover brand DNA for car design. By the end of the course you will be able to recognise the different stages of design development for new cars and new vehicles.
