Form, Target buyers and Package

Form

I have a personal style that I have been developing for two years. I like to hide subtle curves in the extrusions and use these extrusions to form the body of the car and interior as well. Examples are GM Roll up and HSV Encore.

I admire Italian Design and have used my understanding and research into Italian Design as a base to develop my style from. In my view the key spirit of Italian Design are:

  • Design is the production of art
  • Design orientated more than user orientated
  • Design is a combination of traditional craftsmanship, modern thing, personal character, nature material and new material
  • Being an individual, having my own style is important
  • Designer design the desire and dream
  • Design should have an emotional function apart from physical function
  • Aesthetics first, practicality second. Looking good is everything, everything has to look good. Proportions, light interact and details are very important
