ABOUT LUCIANO:

This guy needs absolutely no introduction.

I was kindly introduced to Luciano last year by Michele Leonello and I instantly warmed to him. You cannot help but smile every time you talk with the Italian and his energy is infectious.

Luciano moved to California at the age of 19 to learn English and work on his academic grades to make it into the prestigious Art Center in Pasadena.

Upon graduation, he went to work under the one and only Chris Bangle, at Fiat, and a few years later joined Renault, where he still works today as an R&D Design Manager.

Most notably, Luciano’s key projects in his 25-year career include the Fiat Seicento, Renault Kangoo 2 and the Renault EV Twizy City Car.

Apart from this, Luciano is a seasoned Car Design Tutor, having taught at Art Center Europe, IAAD and IED. He loves teaching, engaging, and smoking cigars.

His contribution to the community, especially among young designers, is unmatched. Apart from private tuition, Luciano hosts online teaching sessions twice a week for anyone, anywhere, and for free.

I don’t know of any other person that is doing so much to help those that don’t have the means to attend fancy design schools and that is why I have a lot of time for this guy.

We need more people like Luciano – Grazie Maestro!!!!

ABOUT ME:

I am a South African Designer, Digital Modeller and the host of Crown Unfiltered. I will be talking to a cross section of people that work in the Car Design Industry.

These will include designers, digital and clay modellers, vis artists and colour & material designers. The focus of our conversations will be centered around personal processes and experiences within the business. My aim is to demystify some of the preconceptions about this industry and give people an unadulterated glimpse into the business.

I also wish to give the younger generation the opportunity to see that the people that these professionals come in different shapes and sizes and some of them will be unknown. The intention is to see that you should always be yourself and not let your job define or change who you are.

Please get in contact if there is something specific you would like me to cover. I would also be really grateful if you could subscribe and share the podcast with anyone that has an affinity for cars, design or both. Thank you! Sam
