A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

Car-Styling-196-cover-webCar Styling will be back starting July 26th, in Japan. After four years since the last issue 196 was published in May 2010, the car design magazine established by Akira Fujimoto in 1973 will take a new format and a temporary new title: "MotorFan Extra Car styling Vol.1".
The choice reflects the regulations applied in Japan by the publishers' wholesale association. Indeed the new issue is classified as a "Mook", that is "Magazine+Book". That is a periodical book.
Through the Internet revolution and the economy downturn in most advanced economies many successful magazines had to stop publication and the renaissance of Car Styling is both an act of love by many car design enthusiasts and professionals as well as an act of faith by the publishers and editors.
The New Car Styling will have a new format, a new design and a content aiming at a wider public, appealing to design enthusiasts and students in the first place and, through them, the design professionals. It will be lighter and more affordable.
 Hironobu Matsunaga, who was appointed Chief Editor of Car Styling back in 2009, has been confirmed in his role and I will continue to be the European Editor. Akira Fujimoto will continue to be President of Car Styling.
More information, here and in AutomotiveDesignClub.com, in the next days.
