Since joining Jaguar in 1999, Ian Callum has built a world-class creative design team, established a new design philosophy and revived the range with award-winning designs. A damn impressive career, and it isn't over yet!
How special is this rare cat? AutoDesignO Takes Five with Wayne Burgess, Jaguar’s Director of Production Studio & SVO Projects, on the design of the F-TYPE 400 SPORT.
The development is intended to become one of the world’s foremost automotive product, engineering and design sites – fitting for a company with ambitious plans for continued global growth.
“Driving the concept on the streets is really important for the design team. It’s very special to put the car outside and in the real-world. You can see the true value of the I-PACE’s dramatic silhouette and powerful proportions when you see it on the road, against other cars.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, explains, " It’s a dramatic, future-facing cab-forward design with a beautiful interior – the product of authentic Jaguar DNA, electric technology and contemporary craftsmanship.”
Autoweek’s Night Among the Design Stars at the Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance promises an evening of Lowcountry cuisine, cocktails and high design on Saturday, November 5. The featured designers attending are Ian Callum, Ralph Gilles, J Mays, and Jay Ward.
Two legendary design visionaries share their views on the importance of Britishness, explaining how this philosophy influences the shape and form of every Jaguar and Land Rover, and how important this design direction is to them and their customers. (video)
