I have been a fan of automotive design for a very long time. In fact to become a car designer was my original motif to study industrial design. Who wasn't, right? However the path I chose later really set me apart from this dream. But the urge of creating something related still excites me everyday.
Chico is a personal chanllenge and practice for me to test my ability to design a conceptual vehicle that is elegant, minimal, and also adorable. The whole concept was 99% aesthetic driven so there really isn't much to talk about in terms of functionality . Chico is also a representation of my personal taste towards vehicles.
The images above are some of my favorite elements on my favorite cars. The timeless quality of the form, color and texture all inspired my creation during the design process.
