Michelin Vehicle Design Contest 2012

traffic-jamHow's Your Commute?
If you commute to school or work how long does it take you to arrive at your destination?

If your commute is typical your daily round trip time is approximately 46 minutes according to a Gallop Poll conducted in 2007.

Michelin North America wonders what sort of traffic congestion will face us in the year 2046.

What sorts of cars will the commuter of the future use? How will these vehicles impact the environment and adapt to the needs of the commuter? Will the education you received at graphic design college help you design the vehicles of the future?

If you are a graphic designer, illustrator or artist who is interested in this scenario you may be the next winner in the Michelin Challenge Design Contest 2012.

What This Contest Is About
Michelin wants to see design ideas for vehicles of the future. Specifically, Michelin states:

futuristic-car-2"For the Michelin Challenge Design 2012, participants are challenged to design a personal, ground-based vehicle that can transport between 2 and 10 people at a time.

Designers will choose Cairo, Los Angeles, Mumbai, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, or Shanghai and design a vehicle to meet anticipated needs for that city in 2046.

"Michelin offers a challenge to designers around the world, individuals and small and large companies, to enthusiastically create, bring forward and display, significant design work that would normally not have an opportunity to be shown at a major auto show."

Now you can utilize all you've learned at graphic design school or engineering school to enter your best shot. You may send in 2D renderings or 3D concept models to scale or full sized form. Sketches, engineering drawings and computer generated graphics are also acceptable.
