Taking place over the summer semester, the design program will last a total of 12 weeks from start to finish while students transform concept sketches to scale models, both in digital and in clay form.

During this time period the students and instructors will work closely with Ian Callum, Jaguar Design Director, and his team on all elements from inspiration, concept sketches to final design approvals, providing an experience as if in an actual global manufacturing design studio.

Julian ThomsonWhen the semester ends in August, students will present their final concepts to the Jaguar Design team who, with school faculty, will select the most successful designs.

“Partnering with Pasadena’s Art Center College of Design and San Francisco’s Academy of Art University will be an exceptional design experience for both the students and Jaguar,” said Callum.

“The program will provide unique insight for both design schools and Jaguar as to what performance and luxury may look and feel like in the future.”

The Academy of Art University in San Francisco will work collectively between two design briefs.

The first is to develop an interior environment for halo sports car. The second is to push opulence into new territory by creating an interior cabin for a 2+2 seat configuration in a large sport coupe four-door.

Design teams will be composed of individuals from four design disciplines:  industrial designer, color and materials designer, human machine interface designer and a digital modeling designer.

The Academy of Art program will also benefit from Jaguar Land Rover’s Portland facility where cutting edge technology and groundbreaking interface design are cultivated.
