Designing concept or production cars is a fascinating process that very few people get to be part of or see. Together, teams of highly skilled and passionate designers and modellers create the aesthetics of a vehicle. This talk starts by providing a brief historical overview of automotive design before introducing the work of the different specialists that contribute to the design of a car. The talk moves on to look at how advances in technology are changing the design process. Technologies include: online collaborations. The talk ends by asking what the future may hold for automotive design.
