Volvo designer launches blog


Simon Lamarre, the designer of the Volvo C30 that was recently launched at the Paris Auto Show, has started a blog. In it, he’ll tell of his experiences through the 4 year project.

His first post does a great job of describing what he and other passionate designers experience on projects:

“For four years, I’ve been eating, sleeping and breathing this car. It’s consumed all my time at work, plus too many sleepless nights and spare moments that I should’ve devoted to something else. But design is one of those things that doesn’t respect the clock. It’s in your head all the time, gnawing at you, poking you, making you second-guess yourself and generally making you nuts. You rocket back and forth between being miserable and being elated (and sometimes both).”
