Ford works with a variety of colleges and universities to further technology and nurture disciplines that will shape the future of the automotive industry. We recently had the opportunity to join some of the top leaders within Ford design as they met with students at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.
The interaction between the students and working professionals brought insight to both groups, and gave them a window into the ideas, philosophies and priorities of each other. The session focused on colors, materials and trends, but also covered business aspects as well.
The students were able to talk openly with the Ford design leaders, and learn more about their work and potential career paths, while they gained insight into real-world projects.
In addition to meeting with Art Center students, these Ford design leaders also worked with EcoStiletto to create the “EcoStiletto to the Metal: Sustainable Design Media Salon,” at the historic Farmer’s Daughter Hotel in Los Angeles. You can read more about that and watch a video from that experience at Fashion and Automotive Design Meet to Talk About Sustainability.
