Intern Junior Designer
My brief stint as a professional designer was a informative experience, where I learned how much it takes to produce a car. I was involved in live projects, where I designed the wheels for the MG Zero concept car which had its debut at the Beijing Motor show 2010. I was paired with another intern and we were asked to produce a presentation on 'what is MG?'. The reaction to this was positive, where the entire design team including design director Tony Williams said they were 'inspired'.
With the success of the presentation behind us, we were asked to produce individual designs which reflect our perception of the brand. After I had generated enough ideation, I was asked to take this into clay, where I was mentored by the clay team. I was taught how to construct a good clay model, from start to finish. This process had opened my eyes to the complexities of surfacing and line treatment, and taught me how to deal with problems and foresee them before they happened.
My entire experience at MG SAIC was incredible, and I am happy that I was given the opportunity, from this I was going straight into my final major project armed with new skills and knowledge.
