Car Designer

What is Car Designer?

Car designer is the profession involved in the development of the appearance, and to some extent the ergonomics, of motor vehicles or more specifically road vehicles. This most commonly refers to automobiles but also refers to motorcycles,trucks,buses, coaches etc. The functional design and development of a modern motor vehicle is typically done by a large team from many different disciplines included in automotive engineers.  Automotive design in this context is primarily concerned with developing the visual appearance or aesthetics of the vehicle, though it is also involved in the creation of the product concept.The designer is usually split into 4 main aspects. There are exterior design, interior design, color and trim. To become part of Automotive Designer or I call them as Stylist is not easy as you might thinking because me as the Automotive Engineer cannot do that. Its a popular misconception that having an engineering background will be a big advantage, but the ability to get highly creative fresh ideas down on paper fluidly is not something that can be easily tought. Actually i can draw car know what i mean..agaga..
When we say about 'design' , it always starting with sketching. Sketching  is a drawing or composition that is not intended as finished work . Its just more like preliminary exploration of our idea. Sound like easy right? think again dude... I show you some example of sketching the car..
