What is Automobile Design ?
Envisioning future generations of automobiles is a dream for the car enthusiast. Car designers are stretching their imaginations, designing cars that will create a feeling of driving exhilaration while incorporating advanced safety technology.
Automotive design is a profession involved in the creation of vehicles. It is practiced by designers who usually have an art background and a degree in industrial/product/automotive design. It incorporates concept design, exterior design, interior design and production design of all modes of vehicle transportation.
Automobile Design is different from the other design disciplines as it has an important kinetic dimension that involves emotion and dynamics. These qualities have a strong influence on the way designs are created, especially with regard to exterior designs and visuals. It also tends to drift into futurism and fantasy. Many designers find places in the film industry creating designs and models on film sets such as Star Wars and Blade Runner.
