Introducing Autodesign.com- For, about, and by car designers.

I purchased the domain autodesign.com way back in 1997 and think I finally have a good use for it. While there are many blogs that focus on cars, and many that focus on design, there aren’t any that focus on autodesign/car design/transportation design. Whatever you call it, three other colleauges and I will post and chat about it, what inspires us to do it, and and how we do it. Don’t expect critiques of new reveals or revealing news, but rather insights we see into our profession. We’ll chat with other designers ( that means you ) and they will be invited to post as well. We’ll see where this goes, hopefully you will enjoy it and come back on a regular basis.

Whether its the new Cadillac ATS, Ford Fusion, Dodge Dart, Lexus LF-LC, Chevrolet i30, Bentley Continental, or Hyundai Genesis coupe, PPG seems to have an overstock on red hues left over from the holiday season.
