The fundamental building blocks of a vehicle's character are determined at the packaging stage. Vehicle envelopes, minimum interior space, structural envelopes, driver eye lines, wheelbase, overhangs, entry and access points, crashworthiness and crumple zone provision all play their part.
Where you place the three dimensional volume is like loading an armature up for a sculptural piece, how you put the flesh on the bones will determine much of the character of the design. Glass to body DLO relationships, door positions and body sections all play a critical role in defining the nature of the vehicle.
The overall silhouette of a vehicle is often overlooked, but like a well honed piece of typography you can tell at a glance the character and purpose of the product.
Some vehicle details are determined by legislative requirements. It is the designer's job to challenge constraints and avoid 'me too' design solutions, making the resolution of each detail say something unique about that vehicle. Design Triangle's designers have great experience in creating innovative and exciting vehicles.
