Ford opens London Design House
From " Motor Trend online "
Ford Motor Company's newest design studio doesn't have a milling machine. Or clay. Or doorways and elevators large enough to squeeze in a car.
J Mays, the company's vice president of design, calls the recently opened Ingeni a "centre of creativity" where ideas and designs are hatched for everything from tomorrow's automobiles and merchandise supporting all eight Ford Motor Company brands to non-automotive consumer products such as watches, furniture and guitars. In addition, Ingeni will specialize in creating integrated brand and communications strategies for clients outside the automotive industry.
The international team of approximately 30 designers and business managers leverages technology to create the vision and products. In addition to state-of-the-art software and a tie into one of the world's most powerful computer networks that help the team quickly capture quality designs, Ingeni will rely on a global network of other resources to create finished products.
My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.
My next Ford.....
