Most of the work I have done for Volkswagen is covered by NDA agreements. Unfortunately I can only speak in a general way about these projects. While in their employ I developed, designed, and presented advanced concepts for VW & Audi. Projects involved global design strategy, future vehicle and service concepts, as well as branding and identity development for products & services. Different projects involved art direction, information design, presentation decks, books, posters, promotional materials, photography, copywriting, and media interviews.
This confidential project was a prototype for a web-based configuration tool that involved a future product and service proposal.
This project was the initial branding and concept development package for what would eventually be launched as the Audi Roadjet Concept. The goal was to create a vehicle who's interior felt spacious and comfortable while still maintaining an attractive silhouette.
During my tenure at Volkswagen Design Center California, the studio moved to Santa Monica and I was asked to create a video that would introduce the new studio to the rest of the Volkswagen concern.
