Korea is one of the world's top competitors in automobile design. There are over 1700 studios operated by Korean car designers in the world. This is the second largest number, while Europe is in first place. By each country, U.K. is in the first place and Korea ranks second.
Also, Hubert Lee, director of Mercedes-Benz design, Daimler, Jungsam Park, project design leader in Nissan, Hoeyoung Hwang, exterior designer in Bentley Motors, Joowan Sung, chief designer of Renault Asia, and Sangyup Lee, director of Hyundai and Genesis design are renowned Korean car designers working in world famous car brands.
Consumer Insight’s recent research found that customers consider the car design as the most important feature when they buy a new car. The result proved the importance of car design, while other features such as price, fuel efficiency, performance or safety are all vital.
There are three world famous international design competition-REDDOT, IDEA, and IF-. Unlike those design competition, Auto Design Award is a global design challenge solely for car design.
Though the history of Auto Design Award is not long, but it does have sustainability. Hope Auto Design Award can become a car design competition which leads global car design trends.
