Back by popular demand after the success of the 2009-2011 editions, these two-day and five-day Design Workshops, planned for January 25-29, 2014 will open to all skill levels of design.
The renewed worshops will be intensely improved and will be aimed at “broadening the skills, experience and job prospects of anyone working – or looking to work – within the field of automotive design.”
Run by MCE Director and recently Bentley Exterior Design Chief David Hilton, the workshops will have a limited attendance of just 20 designers.
The courses will be held within the MCE-RLE design studio in Cologne, Germany, and will see well-known design professionals instruct on a range of design techniques, including sketching and visualizing, clay and digital modeling, portfolio improvement, presentation skills, creative thinking, and automotive and product design business strategies.
The workshops are open to students, graduates, design professionals and even non-designers seeking to gain experience in the field.
Reservations are still available. For more information you can visit www.motorcityeurope.com.

This follow up intense Workshop is all about creativity, talent building and portfolio improvement in an interactive environment. It’s fascinating to get Designers together in one studio setting, learning from each other, trading contacts and concepts. The objective is to interactively improve each individual while opening new doors and ideas,” explains David Hilton.
