ABOUT SCOTT:

Scott Robertson was born in Oregon and grew up in the country. As a child his artist father, Richard, taught him how to draw and design the toys he played with. Fascinated by speed, he and his father designed and built soapbox derby cars. At the age of 14, Scott finished sixth in the world at the annual race in Akron, Ohio. In 1984 he attended Oregon State University. In addition to his studies, he was on the rowing team in the bow position.

 

After two and a half years at Oregon State, Scott transferred to Art Center College of Design, where his father had attended before him. He graduated with honors with a B.S. degree in Transportation Design in April 1990.

 

The day after graduation, Scott opened a product design consulting firm in San Francisco with friend Neville Page. Soon they were designing a variety of consumer products, the majority being durable medical goods and sporting goods. Clients included Everest-Jennings, Kestrel, Giro Sport Design, Nissan, Volvo, Yamaha, Scott USA, and Schwinn.

 

In 1995, both Scott and Neville relocated to Vevey, Switzerland to teach drawing and industrial design at Art Center, Europe. Upon the closing of ACE in the middle of 1996 they relocated to Los Angeles. Scott continues to share a studio with Neville where they do consulting work for a wide range of clients. Since returning from Europe, Scott’s clients have included BMW subsidiary Design-works/USA, Bell Sports, Raleigh Bicycles, Mattel Toys, Patagonia, 3DO, the feature film Minority Report, Nike, Troxel, Rock Shox, Universal Studios, Black Diamond, Angel Studios and Fiat.

 

In 2002, Scott founded Design Studio Press, a publishing company dedicated to art and design education. DSP's first book, Concept Design 1, released in 2003 and now out of print, is a collection of original artwork by seven of the top concept artists working in Hollywood. All seven artists reunited for Concept Design 2, published in 2006, this time including the work of fourteen guest designers as well. In 2004 Scott art-directed 240 illustrations for Mattel's Hot Wheels AcceleRacers collectible card game and authored How to Draw Cars the Hot Wheels Way for Motor Books Inc.

 

Furthering the mission of design, drawing, and rendering education, Design Studio Press teamed with The Gnomon Workshop to create a library of 'how to' DVDs. Scott has instructed on nine DVDs, focusing on drawing and rendering techniques for industrial and entertainment designers. He has co-produced an additional 41 DVDs with various top artists, designers, and instructors, including renowned designer Syd Mead.

 

Scott is married to film editor Melissa Kent and they live in Los Angeles.

ABOUT LAURA:

We have another woman this week that is absolutely killing it in the boys club!

 

Laura is a Creative Exterior Designer working for Alfa Romeo and has taught two of the most prestigious Car Design Colleges in America, CCS in Detroit as well as Art Center in Pasadena.

 

Laura is tenacious, smart, and driven beyond anything that I have seen before and nothing she has achieved has been given to her on a plate. She saved for almost 10 years working various menial jobs to save for her first year's tuition at Art Center.

 

Her continued focus on the bigger picture is something to behold. Most people in her position would have blown the cash on a car or a round-the-world trip to flex on Instagram. Laura never took her eyes off the prize and committed to her vision of becoming a Car Designer.

 

There are some exciting things in the pipeline for Laura and I can't wait to see!

Car Design Podcast - Ralph Gilles | Crown Unfiltered Ep #72

Car Design Podcast - Ralph Gilles | Crown Unfiltered Ep #72

July 3, 2022

Video version of this:

https://youtu.be/-wxbrwl0Y70

 

ABOUT RALPH:

Ralph is the Chief Design Officer for the Stellantis Group. This means that there are 15 brands that he oversees. These include Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, Jeep, Lancia, and Maserati.

 

I would suggest that you go and watch the first series of 'Abstract' on Netflix. It is a series that I keep referring to and I profess to have watched it almost as many times as 'Stepbrothers.'

 

It has had a profound impact on me and the reason that I am going on about it is that Ralph has casually got an episode dedicated solely to him and his work.

 

I have to admit that I was not completely cool in this talk with him. I was fangirling a little, and probably too aware of how insanely valuable his time is.

 

Needless to say, he was incredibly kind and full of wisdom on so many levels.

 

Ralph is an incredible leader that has achieved insane levels of success in, quite literally, record time, and all in the face of adversity.

 

It also needs to be said that you would be hard-pushed to find anyone with a negative word to say about him. Ralph has been vocal in his advocacy of teamwork and he knows that empowering his people results in everyone rising together.

 

I can't really say much else - Ralph is a total anomaly.

 

Thank you, Ralph!

Car Design Podcast -  Fabio Filippini | Crown Unfiltered Ep #71

Car Design Podcast - Fabio Filippini | Crown Unfiltered Ep #71

July 3, 2022

Video version of this:

https://youtu.be/ylAR7bklxvY

 

ABOUT FABIO:

Fabio Filippini is the Former Design Director of Pininfarina and before that, the Vice President of Interior Design for Renault.

 

I cannot reel off the endless list of this man’s accolades, but I will say that he has been responsible for some of my favorite Concept Cars over the last 10 years ( Pininfarina H2 Speed, BMW Pininfarina GranLusso Coupe, Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo and, of course, the Pininfarina Sergio Concept).

 

Fabio is one of those leaders that transcend every proverbial box that we love to put Designers into. He has not only designed exteriors and interiors, but he is also a very successful Product Designer, Brand Strategist and with his beautiful book, Curve, he can now add Author to that list.

 

He has successfully navigated every type of design environment from large OEM’s to small boutique Design Houses and is now running his own Creative Consultancy in his adoptive home of Tokyo. He speaks 5 languages and I think it’s safe to say that he is pretty fluent in the language of Design.

 

Fabio’s brilliance is immediately apparent when you talk to him and it comes across so effortlessly. He has nothing to prove and his down-to-earth demeanor might take you by surprise.

 

It doesn’t get much better than this - Grazie Fabio!

FIND CHRIS HERE:

https://www.instagram.com/inanimatti/

 

ABOUT CHRIS:

Chris Bangle was born in Ravenna (Ohio) in 1956. After attending the University of Wisconsin and graduating from the Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, California), Bangle began his career at Opel in 1981, and then 4 years later moved on to Fiat, where he designed the brazen Coupe Fiat.

 

In 1992, he was named the first American Chief of Design at BMW. His mandate to "strategize emotion" through design has energized the typically conservative brand, updating BMW's classic design with bold, sculptural lines, a far cry from homogenous car design. As a result, his daring designs have helped BMW become the global leader in premium car sales and brought in legions of new fans, spurring rivals to follow suit in emulating this distinctive style.

 

After leaving BMW in February 2009, he founded Chris Bangle Associates s.r.l. (CBA) at a centuries old Borgata in the hills above Clavesana - a famed center for wine in the Piemonte Region of Italy. Today, as the managing Director of CBA, Chris Bangle leads a team of designers and engineers, who, together with the Associates from the CBA clients, use the Borgata as a hybrid Studio/Design Residency. The open spaces and beautiful vineyards around the Borgata encourage the imagination.

 

One of his most recent projects - REDS – is a new kind of EV developed for CHTC (China Hi-Tech Group Corporation), and it introduces a new visual language for cars. After the launch at Los Angeles Motors show in November 2017, REDS is now being developed for production. With REDS Chris Bangle has taken a revolutionary approach to car design by beginning the process from the inside so that the interior of the car is a wonderful place to live, work and play. As Chris says, he has “designed a space that decided to become a car".

 

In addition to the studio’s activities devoted to product and car design, workshops and strategic consultancy, CBA has developed in the last five years a branch dedicated to animation and cartoons.

 

The experiences in design and innovation and the advice Bangle has to offer after over 25 years as a manager make him a speaker in demand; he travels frequently around the world to lecture, teach design, and consult with his Client Associates. He is married and has a son.

 

Chris Bangle is the winner of the Lifetime Design Achievement Award EyesOn Design 2012, the Compasso d’Oro Career Award 2018 and of the American Prize for Design 2020-21.

ABOUT LUCIANO:

This guy needs absolutely no introduction.

 

I was kindly introduced to Luciano last year by Michele Leonello and I instantly warmed to him. You cannot help but smile every time you talk with the Italian and his energy is infectious.

 

Luciano moved to California at the age of 19 to learn English and work on his academic grades to make it into the prestigious Art Center in Pasadena.

 

Upon graduation, he went to work under the one and only Chris Bangle, at Fiat, and a few years later joined Renault, where he still works today as an R&D Design Manager.

 

Most notably, Luciano’s key projects in his 25-year career include the Fiat Seicento, Renault Kangoo 2 and the Renault EV Twizy City Car.

 

Apart from this, Luciano is a seasoned Car Design Tutor, having taught at Art Center Europe, IAAD and IED. He loves teaching, engaging, and smoking cigars.

 

His contribution to the community, especially among young designers, is unmatched. Apart from private tuition, Luciano hosts online teaching sessions twice a week for anyone, anywhere, and for free.

 

I don’t know of any other person that is doing so much to help those that don’t have the means to attend fancy design schools and that is why I have a lot of time for this guy.

 

We need more people like Luciano – Grazie Maestro!!!!

ABOUT ADRIAN:

We have a Motorcycle Design Legend on the show today and I cannot be more excited to share this with you.

 

Many of you will know Adrian as being the former Design Director of MV Agusta or for his super cool start-up, C-Creative.

 

What many of you don’t know is that Adrian was never destined for any of this…

 

His father was a lorry driver and his mother worked in a supermarket and like most parents, they wanted the best for their son. The world of design was alien to them, but they believed in Adrian’s passion and work ethic, and so they made some risky sacrifices to elevate his chances of becoming a designer.

 

It goes without saying that Adrian realised, to his core, that giving anything less than 110 percent would not be enough to ensure success. He made his own sacrifices, put in the work and along the way, strangers contributed and helped at the least expected times.

 

This conversation has countless lessons for anyone with dreams and aspirations that think they weren’t born into the right circumstances or don’t have the right connections to be successful. It is also for anyone that thinks that they weren't born with the 'gift' of talent.

 

There are no shortcuts, and connections will only get you so far. Many don't want to hear it, but hard work fails no one!
