Who’d have thunk it? An art school whose graduates don’t end up dead in a crackhouse!
Indeed, with RCA alumni like Peter Horbury (who brought Volvo back from the edge) and Peter Schreyer who designed the original Audi TT, suddenly the idea of ditching dentistry for design classes may not mean the automatic disinheritance you were expecting. That is, if you can draw cars and don’t colour them outside of the lines.
See what we’re talking about by looking at these submissions from RCA students to the 2008 Pilkington Automotive Vehicle Design Awards. Pretty interesting designs even if you get the feeling that they would look a lot better if there were girls in metal bikini’s standing near them.
