Ford Summer Internship

Ford's World headquarters (Dearborn, Michigan)

Ford is tight straight up!
Here is some work I did while at FoMoCo this last summer. I had the time of my life and made a bunch of really good friends for sure!

Ford Radix Hybrid Interior

Radix (Roots in Latin)

Hybrids are a hot commodity, providing owners a sense of good will in their ability to help the
enviroment. My objective with Ford was to design an interior that reflects its eco-nature manufactured with sustainable materials. To obtain this goal, I designed the center console resembled a tree trunk with branching componets. The console contains a poly-lithium ion battery, giving life to the entire vehicle.

F-125 Abeo (Change in Latin)Smart use of Sheet metal
Trucks as an endangered Species

Ford Motor Company

Model T was a very influential vehicle and was even named car of the when starting this project we had big shoes to fill. The design brief was to design a new age Model T for 2030. Looking at the social impact, styling and the culture that emerged from it. My particular concept was based on the buying process and to tie the Assembly line to a who new experience. The customer would come to a Model T store, answer yes or no question to help them build their own vehicle, watch it manufactured and then drive it home that same day. This would give the customer of tomorrow custom-ability which normally passes the manufacture by and it would also give the consumer the feeling of their own creation.

Final Presentation with GM

Sealed Ready for Paint!!

The General Motors design objective was to create an innovative emerging market vehicle using the E-flex propulsion system. Daewoo is currently a rebadged vehicle for GM and is only really sold in Korea. My concept was to reinvent the brand similar to how GM has reinvented Cadillac and Buick. To do so, I decided to bring Daewoo to a market that has never seen this brand and so, I choose Brazil. Daewoo could then be designed specifically for this country and turn profits for GM in this emerging market.
