Luciano Bove is a car design manager working at Renault Design. Born in Italy, he graduated from Art Center College of Design in California.

Introduction

Dear friends,

several times I receive questions like "How did you become a car designer? Who told you about the school? What type of difficulties did you encounter?..." and many others that I do not list here.

For this reason I decided to write about my experience.

What did it take to become a car designer? When I was a young boy very passionate about cars I did not have much information about the "how to become a professional in Design field", it was difficult to find the way to know what to do, for example I had no idea about any school or university teaching automobile Design.

At that time some of my school teachers were suggesting to go to Architecture or Engineering university. However; after few visits with a friend I understood that it was not the right way to take. I was resignated to obey to my parents and give it up!

One day I just came across the right car magazine with an incredible article "how students imagine the future of automobiles in California at Art Center College of Design"!

From that day my life changed for the better thanks to my parents' support, too.

When my Life Changed.

I was 19 when I confessed to my father that I wanted to become a car designer. One week earlier I found on a car magazine a great reportage about Car Design and how to study it. All the information I was desperately searching since a year concentrated into a fanthastic article full of photos and useful advices. So I showed it to my parents.

At the beginning my father did not want to listen to me asking me to continue my Economics studies at university. However; after few weeks, several talks, and my mother's action in convincing my dad, my life started seriously to change!

My father told me that I could go study a year the English language in San Francisco, follow a design college to prepare my admission portfolio and try to apply at the Art Center College in Pasadena. He also added that If nothing would have been accomplished I had to return to Italy to get back to my studies.

In September (four months later) I left Italy and I took a plane for my first time full of hopes. It was the 5th of September 1983.

I spent a total of 6 years in USA, when I arrived to ACCD for my entry portfolio admission interview, the committee told me that my works were fine, but I did not have the right school requirements (coming from a foreign country), so the only solution was to go to an American college for 2 extra years!

I did earn my requirements and I was accepted as a full time student at Art Center, I was really happy, I studied hard and being a foreigner it was a little more complicated for me. I worked a lot unless I was out, I did many sleepless nights to finish my projects, I went through real frustration and I also lived amazing moments during my final presentations. I graduated on the 18th of August 1989.

In November of the same year I started to work as designer at Fiat Centro Stile in Turin Italy.

Today I am a Designer Manager

Today I am a Design manager in automotive industry with already 29 years experience and satisfied with the fact that all the hard work served to accomplish the goal. I worked, for about 10 years, with some European design schools teaching, too.

I wanted to give back what I have learned in US, I had the chance to meet a lot of beautiful young people with hopes and talent. I tried to help those that did not have the right information giving tips and advices to find their own way to become designers.

The message here is tha you have to fight for it, to be a car designer is not an easy thing. You need talent, strong will to overcome all sort of problems and negative times, you never give up, you must be disciplined. You need a good design school to improve your skills and talent, its cost is an investement on yourself for your future.

The Right Steps to Make

When I am invited for a lecture I often tell about the right steps to make to plan your design student career. It is important to plan it to avoid waste of time and energy.

The design field is very competitive, we cannot find a school just around the corner, and job openings are rare every year. You understand that if you do not make a plan about the right university to choose you risk to fail even before starting.

Let's make the right steps!

Step 1 prepare yourself. Do you draw? Do you paint? Do you feel you have an artistic talent? Do you love designing cars? If so, start putting together your drawing and all materials you made showing your talent and passion. It will be your entry portfolio.

It is important to prepare an entry portfolio it is for your admission aplication. To be accepted by a Design school, you need to prove that you do have the basic requirements to get in. Talent, skills, motivation and passion.


Step 2 select the right school. Today we have more schools than 30 years ago, some are really good and some are just right, some others are really bad (few). Before you decide where to go for a visit make sure you took all necessary information to select at least 3 good ones and try your chance.

Remember that in this case school reputation is the key because it is irelated to automotive companies and a higher rate of employement after diploma.

I wrote several articles about this topic you can easily find here on Hubpages.


Step 3 discipline & sacrifice

The competition among students is very high, every year there are about 1000 students getting their diploma and ready to attack the few job interviews available.

This is the reason I am writing about discipline & sacrifice, because you have to sweat working hard during all school time. Your objective is to improve your skills to exercise your creativity in a professional way. The harder you work the better you get.

The school gives you the tools to exercise and learn, you have to put your daily effort in it.

The final mission is to produce, at the end of your studies, a very good portfolio to seduce those that will watch it (design studios), you can do it following these steps with a strong sense of responsability.

Remember, you are doing it for your future so don't waste the opportunity.

Good luck!

      Hi SPD is a good school however it offers only a Master program and not a full Bachelor course which means that you can do well only if you already have a base of car drawings with good skills.

      Dear Mr. Luciano.

      Thank you for sharing with us your inspiring story

      However I would like to ask about the spd scuola politecnica di design university in Milan

      is it good enough to start my studies and career from there or you suggest a better design school?

      And what are the chances to find a job in the same field after graduating from SPD as a master degree holder in Auto design?

      Thank you.

      Taha to be a designer you need a design school not an engineering school...so or you stop and change or you go to design school after your engineering degree....

      I have been sketching hard as you suggested. (and its getting better, linework and all)Its gonna take a little more convincing to my parents amd their main question is that am i gonna earn back as fast as i invested in the school? How much do you pay freshmen designers? I am very passionate about working in this field not for the sake of money but for myself. But sooner or later money does come into the equation. Will I earn back what i invested?

      hey Sir ,

      How are you ?

      I am a third year mechanical student. Studying in Chennai , India.

      For this summer I want to do my internship in any foreign based automobile company in R&D or in design department. I am pretty much good at 3D software like CATIA and ANSYS . Wanted to pursue my carrier in that field.

      so, how I can get any paid internship for a month (as the cost for living in foreign is high, its better if i get some finance help). I am eagerly waiting for your reply .

      First, congratulations on work, his blog. I think you give a lot of information that can not be found anywhere.

      I am from Ecuador, my family belongs to a middle socioeconomic class.

      I have a 3 year degree in industrial design, a superior design institute.

      I want to know what school I can go if I do not possess a bachelor's degree. want to directly study the master.

      also what is affordable country to live? I actually prefer europe.

      I have a good level of design and sketching.

      until now my best option is torino ied. however, I'll have to take out a $ 80,000 loan. that's a lot of money. couple pay tuition and living there.

      Which do you suguieres me in italy and europe?

      thanks for everything!

      best wishes

      Hi, if we talk about best car design schools for me...I would say Art Center college of Design in Pasadena (my school) and CCS in Detroit. However in Europe you have UMEA in Sweden, Coventry in England, IED and IAAD in Italy, Strate College in France....

      Hi, digital modeling is not car design ! It is a professional activity related to car design.

      Dear Kartik yes there is a future in that definitely. We always are looking for people that love to work with virtual 3D software to make our cars interiors détails and accessories...design schools (also in India) offer a sort of digital design course. Go for it!

      Sir,

      I am doing mechanical engineering from srm university chennai ,India and I am interested over learning machine designing softwares(modeling software like CATIA, Solidworks , ansys...) and making different designs.

      sir i wants to ask that is there any future in that. I am not very much interested in car designing. what I should do to get more professional in that so that I can easily find a job in designing in any company. sir need to work after my b.tech so that I can pay my debts.

      Mr Luciano...

      i cant thank you enough for this opportunity & info that you made available via your hubpage. i've been searching for way; means & info on automotive designing for years already.

      over the years, i've compiled so many designs of my own. a range of different types of vehicles for a range of different marques, as well as my own 'brand'. in earlier research, i was able to get in contact with one of the senior managers at a toyota plant in my hometown. it was just an assembly play & i knew it was a long shot, but i really wanted to get into designing & took any opportunity that came my way. but it wasn' to be that one. i was told that my designs would be sent in for "perusal" & that i should get in touch with them again, once i've completed my schooling. i did so & was then told that i have to complete a cad course at tertiary level. unfortunately, it wasn't in my budget.

      so life went on & i continued to sketch & design. i can say i've grown & developed a bit over time, but it is all raw & unprofessional (obviously). all the while i have been reading up & researching car designing. trying to find ways to get into the industry, even if it's at the bottom - i don't mind working my way up.

      i have, as per your advise, sent you an invite on facebook. i look forward to connecting & communicating with you on this topic. i also hope you can advise me & direct me on the path to car designing. perhaps, in future, you can 'peruse' my deigns & give me some expert advise.

      once again, thanks for all the help & info...i look forward to your response & acceptance on facebook.

      No you do not have to do Engineering! You need a design college in order to become a designer. So go straight to IED for your application.
