Trusting Collaborators

“ I bring a  global and fresh outside vision for the design subject at hand to create a truly remarkable and impactful design. Drawing inspiration from various cultural influences that I have personally experienced through extensive travelling, I strive to bring a unique perspective to every project.

I believe in a well-balanced approach between disruptive and easy-to-absorb design solutions. By defying conventions and challenging traditional norms, we can create designs that not only catch the eye but also engage and captivate the audience emotionally. In my experience with car design, I know the value and importance of meticulousness in design refinement. Every volume, surface, line and detail plays a significant role in shaping the overall perception of the vehicle. By focusing on the quality of all those aspects, incorporating innovative materials, and paying attention to every detail, we can create a cohesive and harmonious design that will become iconic by its clarity and memorability. “
“ I believe that collaboration and synergy among the different specialties is key.  In order to create successful and innovative vehicles, as a designer, I consider myself a catalyst bringing together all the various specialties involved, such as the expertise of engineers, naval architects, aerodynamics experts, marketing specialists and product planning teams to name a few.

In my experience, I have worked on various projects where this collaborative approach has proven to be effective. By actively involving and considering the requirements and input from each specialty, I have been able to design and develop vehicles that not only meet the desired specifications but also attract the customer from an emotional design standpoint. “
“ The automotive design industry, being at the top of the overall design game, is a highly competitive field where talent, creativity, and adaptability are constantly challenged. To excel in this industry, one must possess not only technical skills but also a deep understanding of market trends, consumer preferences, and brand identity. As a designer who has thrived in this industry for 15 years, I have honed my craft and proven my ability to create compelling and innovative designs, always delivering exceptional results. 

Automotive design being a rapidly and continuously evolving field, driven by technological advancements, sustainability concerns, and changing consumer expectations, as a successful automotive designer I also possess a curious and adaptable mindset, constantly seeking new inspirations and staying abreast of the latest developments and innovations in mobility. My ability to create visually stunning and functionally logical designs is a testament to my mastery of the craft and my commitment to staying at the forefront of design innovation. “
