Edwin has always been interested in cars since the moment he knew there is
a thing called car in this world. He always dreams about designing a car. But
to become a car designer, it takes more than just a habit of collecting pretty
images of cars, which he does everyday.

The knowledge he has at the moment is not enough. He would like to know
more about how automotive designers in different countries design cars;
the methods they use when designing a car and the design stories behind
their cars. Also he would like to know about the new technology and new
materials in automotive design to make a car more sustainable, and what
would the car of the future look like and how people will use the car in the future.

Then he would like to design a car and submit to a competition. If the lightning
strikes the same person for a second time, he may get another red cup.

Some thoughts about My Proposal

I’m going to call my Project “Project EC” or “ProjECt”. Alright it may not be that creative, but as it’s so often that nearlly all my projects have names with “EC” in it, such as my Edwin’s Cardboard Officechair (ECO), my eLight (Light Design), My Edwin’s Carbon Fiber Ring (EC Ring). EC can refer to my name Edwin Conan, or Edwin’s Car, Eco Car, or whatever. Anyway, in order to design a car, can be a sports car, a supercar, a muscle car (at the moment i’m doing one), an off-roader, a van, a truck, a roadster, a speedster, a bus…. whatever car i’ll end up doing next year, there is research needs to be done, although as a car fan, i’ve been collecting car information everywhere since the age of 3, there’s still lots of bits that are missing, or rather not in depth, and there are loads of new technology coming out these days that i missed or heard of but not look into it deeply again.  So i’m looking at different car stories, history, also materials, manufacturor, design briefs, designers and new technology and so on.
