The auto industry is facing tough competition and severe economic constraints. Their products need to be designed "right the first time" with the right combinations of features that not only satisfy the customers but continually please and delight them by providing increased functionality, comfort, convenience, safety, and craftsmanship. Based on the author's forty plus years of experience as a human factors researcher, engineer, manager, and teacher who has conducted numerous studies and analyses, Ergonomics in the Automotive Design Process covers the entire range of ergonomics issues involved in designing a car or truck and provides evaluation techniques to avoid costly mistakes and assure high customer satisfaction. The book begins with the definitions and goals of ergonomics, historic background, and ergonomics approaches. It covers human characteristics, capabilities, and limitations considered in vehicle design in key areas such as anthropometry, biomechanics, and human information processing. It then examines how the driver and the occupants are positioned in the vehicle space and how package drawings and/or computer-aided design models are created from key vehicle dimensions used in the automobile industry. The author describes design tools used in the industry for occupant packaging, driver vision, and applications of other psychophysical methods. He covers important driver information processing concepts and models and driver error categories to understand key considerations and principles used in designing controls, displays, and their usages, including current issues related to driver workload and driver distractions. The author has included only the topics and materials that he found to be useful in designing car and truck products and concentrated on the ergonomic issues generally discussed in the automotive design studios and product development teams. He distills the information needed to be a member of an automotive product development team and create an ergonomically superior vehicle.

Reading Graphic Design in Cultural Context explains key ways of understanding and interpreting the graphic designs we see all around us, in advertising, branding, packaging and fashion. It situates these designs in their cultural and social contexts. Drawing examples from a range of design genres, leading design historians Grace Lees-Maffei and Nicolas P. Maffei explain theories of semiotics, postmodernism and globalisation, and consider issues and debates within visual communication theory such as legibility, the relationship of word and image, gender and identity, and the impact of digital forms on design. Their discussion takes in well-known brands like Alessi, Nike, Unilever and Tate, and everyday designed things including slogan t-shirts, car advertising, ebooks, corporate logos, posters and music packaging.

The graphic artist's guide to sustainable design Graphic design is frequently thought of as a purely decorative effort. Yet these efforts can be responsible for shocking impacts on natural resources just to produce a barely-glanced-at catalog or mail piece. Sustainable Graphic Design: Tools, Systems, and Strategies for Innovative Print Design helps designers view graphic design as a holistic process. By exploring eco-conscious materials and production techniques, it shows designers how to create more effective and more sustainable designs. Sustainable Graphic Design opens your eyes to the bigger picture of design seen from the viewpoints of the audience, the creative vendor, their suppliers, and society as a whole. Chapters are written by a wide range of sustainable design pioneers and practitioners—including graphic designers, creative managers, marketing consultants, environmentalists, researchers, and psychologists—giving you critical information on materials and processes. Case studies illustrate and tie concepts together. Sustainability isn't a fad or a movement; it's a long-term paradigm shift. With this forward-looking toolkit, you'll be able to infuse your work with sustainability systems thinking, empowering you to play your role in achieving a future where design and sustainability are natural partners.

The concept originator behind the New Beetle, J Mays is among the most influential designers in the history of the automobile. Mays's approach has revolutionized the industry by integrating branding and identity with the design process. Also at the foundation of his philosophy is a belief that the innovations of the past should inform future solutions. His cars intrigue us like no others because they respond to underlying emotional and cultural associations. This first book on Mays's work tracks his meteoric career from his start at Volkswagen-Audi to his current tenure at Ford, where he designs for eight lines (Ford, Mercury, Lincoln, Mazda, Volvo, Land Rover, Jaguar, and Aston Martin). Illustrated with more than eighty-five photographs, freehand sketches, and computer renderings, Retrofuturism reveals new ways of thinknig about design that have the potential to greatly change the way we live in the twenty-first century.

Für den Autokäufer entscheidet häufig schon der erste Blick auf ein Fahrzeug, ob er sich dafür oder dagegen entscheidet. Ausschlaggebend ist in diesem Fall die Formensprache, die sich über das Automobildesign vermittelt. Automobildesign und Technik beschreibt die Abhängigkeiten zwischen Formgebung und technischer Machbarkeit. Ohne ein vom Kunden akzeptiertes Außen- und Innendesign lässt sich ein Automobil schlecht verkaufen. Autoren sind die erfolgreichen Automobildesigner und die -techniker der großen Autoproduzenten. Sie zeigen die Lösungen zwischen technischen Zwängen, wie Aerodynamik, Produktion, Gesetzes- und Kundenanforderungen. Damit steht erstmals ein Werk zur Verfügung, das gleichzeitig die Welt des Designs und die Welt der Technik näher bringt.

The automobile seems to be as popular now as it ever was. Posters of cars still adorn many a child’s bedroom wall, and school exercise books are full of doodles of cars. This book takes those notebook sketches and teaches you how to develop them into the car designs you see in magazines. Using simple to follow step-by-step drawings it guides you from pencil sketch to marker rendering, from doodle to highly visual computer generated artwork. Adrian Dewey has worked on designs as diverse as small sports cars to double decker buses, modified motors to concept Formula 1 cars, using various techniques and styles. In this book, he uses his knowledge of the different styles to guide the reader in creating great artwork and designs of their own. The book shows in detail how to use different materials and how to get the most out of each one, whether it be a great pencil sketch or a photo realistic vector illustration. The book also features an easy to follow index for quick reference on different types of drawing.

Computer languages and computer graphics have become the primary modes of human-computer interaction. This book provides a basic introduction to "Real and Virtual Environment" computer modelling. Graphics models are used to illustrate both the way computer languages are processed and also used to create computer models of graphic displays. Computer languages have been bootstrapped from machine code, to high-level languages such as Java, to animation scripting languages. Integrating graphic and computer models takes this support for programming, design and simulation work, one step further, allowing interactive computer graphic displays to be used to construct computer models of both real and virtual environment systems. The Java language is used to implement basic algorithms for language translation, and to generate graphic displays. It is also used to simulate the behaviour of a computer system, to explore the way programming and design-simulation environments can be put together.

Als im Herbst 1963 auf dem Turiner Autosalon der erste Lamborghini 350 GTV zu bewundern war, ahnten nur die wenigsten Betrachter, dass sie der Geburtsstunde einer Automobil-Legende beigewohnt hatten. Mehr als 40 Jahre später wissen wir, dass Lamborghini trotz vieler Schwierigkeiten dank seiner kraftstrotzenden und atemberaubenden Modelle zur Auto-Elite gehört. Mit Modellen wie den Miura, Espada, Countach, Diablo schuf das Haus aus Sant Agata neben vielen anderen Modellen Klassiker, die heute die Garagen der Sammler schmücken und seit die AUDI AG die Firma übernommen und gerettet hat, haben der Murciélago und der Gallardo die Tradition fortgesetzt. In diesem Buch sind die schönsten und die wichtigsten Lamborghini-Verkaufsprospekte gesammelt kleine ästhetische Meisterwerke, die neben den technischen Fakten viel von dem Zeitgeist erzählen, in dem aus dem Traum des Ferruccio Lamborghini eine bewunderte Realität wurde
