The Institute of Engineering Designers (IED) has announced an Honorary Fellowship for Jaguar’s Design Director Ian Callum, who in addition, also received the Gerald Frewer Memorial Trophy(*) in recognition of his outstanding contributions to modern car design.
The Gerald Frewer Memorial Trophy is an annual accolade presented to those who are exceptional in the field of engineering design, design management, education and training or design philosophy.
Ian Callum said: "I feel very honoured to be welcomed as an Honorary Fellow by the IED, particularly as they have acknowledged people of such great achievement in the past. This recognition, accompanied by the Gerald Frewer Memorial Trophy, is a clear indication that our design philosophy at Jaguar is being recognised within the industry."
"The IED are particularly delighted to be able to count such an influential designer as an Honorary Fellow."
(*)Gerald Frewer died prematurely in April 1978 at the age of 56. He was a practising designer at the Kennedy Space Centre, and was known to most IED members through his lectures and articles on the American Space Programme, to which he contributed from the early days of the Project Apollo through to the Space Lab and the early years of the Shuttle Project. He left a gift to the IED to finance the award.
