What is the Typical Day Like for an Automotive Designer?


so you know usually I come into work I I sit down usually you know we check check my emails you know make sure you know either a management or you know any of my colleagues doesn’t require something immediately you know because our our design you know our responsibilities within the design company is you know there are immediate needs there are long-term needs you know there’s like developing a product sometimes we need to do short-term things like you know maybe a graphic logo for you know an older products so there are little tasks that we have to do that you know are either you know long term task or short term test so the first thing I do is I check my emails make sure no one needs anything immediately or you know also in the particular studio this is kind of going backwards but I work at you know BMW design works which is once a similary of BMW which does a lot of advanced concept work you know for B&W cars but we also do we also work with third-party clients to design their products then from there you know we usually meet with if I’m work on a particular project I meet with my project team just to make sure that we’re all aligned and we all kind of have our tasks set because a lot of times you don’t work solo you work as part of a team so you know I’ll check with my you know sometimes design manager or a director make sure there’s no changes in the project scope or the direction of the project meet with my teammates you know if we’re working with junior designers my love on the senior designers from local junior center just you know check up on his ideas or sketches and see what he’s done and make sure that okay he’s in line or he’s he’s working in the right direction and so that those types of tasks and then and then from there once you’ve done that then you know I have my own task to do as a designer so anything from you know sketching or you know modeling or creating a presentation or you know whatever wherever we are in the face of a project so I’m executing my my duties and then you know in any time in a day like sometimes we have internal meetings where sometimes other teammates sort of take the time to expose a certain aspect of the project that they’re working on because they feel like either the innovation or the technology or any aspect of that project is quite cutting edge or useful for for the rest of the team to sort of learn from so there’s a lot of like sharing within the company that takes place so you know and again because we work on such a large multitude of projects and products there’s so much like almost cross pollenization like ideas that we can kind of learn from each other from different industries that we can sort of apply to ours so there’s a lot of sharing that takes place and that can happen at anytime so you know we’ll schedule meeting in there midday and sometimes you’re just half an hour where you know you have a designer sort of just expose a technology or idea or anything that they’re working on that we’ve that as a design team we could benefit from so and then from there as a team we tend to sit down together and just you know vocally work through ideas and and and and critique each other’s ideas and see how we can improve so that again when we start the next day we have new direction and more refreshed ideas thank you for watching a wise way subscribe to stay updated share to pass the knowledge or view our other videos on the left
