Overview

Children often see faces in cars: the headlights are eyes, the grill a mouth. Many of us grow out of it. But for one at least one automotive designer, every car still has a face - and a soul.

Growing up in Montreal in the late 1970s, Ralph Gilles was used to seeing ugly cars – but a Porsche 911 Turbo changed his perspective. Merging his passion for art with his father's ambition for him to become an engineer, Gilles quickly rose to become Chrysler's Head of Global Design - one of the youngest in the industry.

In this episode of Netflix's Abstract: The Art of Design docuseries, we follow Gilles as he explains the key approaches to automotive design, and how it blends form, function, and concept together into one package.
