Car Design Podcast with MIKE TURNER | Crown Unfiltered Ep #65

Crown Unfiltered - Car Design Podcast

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM FOR MORE CONTEXT ON MY GUESTS: https://www.instagram.com/crownunfiltered/ VIDEO VERSION OF THIS: https://youtu.be/7A4iM54u6LA ABOUT MIKE: Mike is a Senior Designer working for David Gordon Design LTD. He has worked professionally for over 25 years, designing everything from cars to trains, motorcycles to land speed record cars, mobile phones as well as construction machines. He has spent the past 3-4 years developing digital concepts in his spare time - largely inspired by iconic road and race cars from his youth. Recently, Mike began experimenting with an altogether more extreme modelling and visualisation technique – exploring the idea of reducing well known classic cars down to their most basic form, yet still ensuring their unique character remains recognisable. Inspired by the low-res video game graphics of his youth, Mike’s vehicles are reduced, simplified and abstracted - so that only a series of faceted polygon surfaces remain. Mike pushes hard whilst shaping his digital creations - to see how minimal he dare go without losing the spirit and key features of the original design. It’s a careful balancing act – but each is still recognisable, despite being a fraction of the original in terms of surface complexity and polygon count. In Mike’s images you still recognize the essence of a Ferrari GTO, Lamborghini Countach or LandRover Defender at first glance. Mike’s new artwork style has drawn interest on Social Media, and as a result an initial collection of 10 cars were very quickly snapped up as exclusive NFT’s via Mike’s fledgling brand Crypto-Carz. In addition to the above, Mike talked about his time in Potsdam and what it was like during its heyday. He also covered extensively his time at JCB, including the dissatisfaction he felt as the Head of Design. Last, but certainly not least, he spoke openly about struggles with mental health and the priority he now places on his well-being. Mike is still happily employed at David Gordon Limited and every time I speak to him he can't shut up about how great the company is. You should probably go and check them out - links below!

I will be talking to a cross section of people that work in the Car Design Industry. These will include designers, digital and clay modellers, vis artists and colour & material designers. The focus of our conversations will be centered around personal processes and experiences within the business. My aim is to demystify some of the preconceptions about this industry and give people an unadulterated glimpse into the business. I also wish to give the younger generation the opportunity to see that the people that these professionals come in different shapes and sizes and some of them will be unknown. The intention is to see that you should always be yourself and not let your job define or change who you are. Please get in contact if there is something specific you would like me to cover. I would also be really grateful if you could subscribe and share the podcast with anyone that has an affinity for cars, design or both. Thank you!
