I spend uncount­ed amounts of my time, most­ly when I’m walk­ing or dri­ving around town, look­ing at and think­ing about car designs… admit­ted­ly, when I’m not behind my com­put­er, you’ve got to look for oth­er things to obsess about– that’s the prob­lem with being a designer.

Slate has an inter­est­ing arti­cle about the state of car design (I might say, it’s quite cynical).

get yer red hot volvosI’ve always liked Volk­swa­gen styling, for its sim­plic­i­ty and ‘sporty-ness’. I don’t like the new Pas­sat though (2001). I think they’re try­ing to look more like the new Volvos… which attempt, (at least the big ones), some­thing like an Oldsmo­bile for old peo­ple with taste. The huge fins in the back– what’s with that? Looks like there should be rock­ets com­ing out the back.
