Good design is easily recognizable. From fashion to electronics to automobiles, good design is elegant, creative, beautiful, and functional. But finding good designers isn’t always easy. That’s why the FCA US Product Design team created its Drive for Design contest. It is a creative way to educate young artists about careers in automotive design. Starting locally in Detroit, Drive for Design has grown to become a national contest that has awarded talented students with prizes and rare opportunities to help further develop their design skills.
This year’s winner is Ben Treinen from Archbishop Moeller High School in Cincinnati, OH. His design is a futuristic vision of a Dodge SRT supercar.
Trienen and three other winners will be recognized and awarded with prizes on Feb. 26 at the 64th annual Meguiar’s Detroit Autorama at Cobo Center in Detroit. The four winning sketches will remain on display in the Mopar booth at the Detroit Autorama Feb. 26-28.
