Mike Robinson

Yesterday after almost 5 years of not knowing anything about him, entering Vercar Model in Beinasco, Turin I have meet a person that marked my life as a designer: Mike Robinson. So why do I say this? After I have finished the school in Valencia I was looking for a job in car design industry, and a good friend of mine give me Mike’s e-mail. At that time he was in charge of the Centro Stile from Turin. To make it short the same day I have received a mail from Mike asking me to come for an interview in Centro Stile. After that in about half a year I have started my career as a professional car designer in Fiat’s Advanced Design working under the supervision of Roberto Giolito, as an Inovo Design Studio employee.

After that we worked for a short period of time in some projects and we discovered that we liked old Lancia cars a lot and for both the best car ever designed was 1970 Lancia Stratos Zero made by Marcello Gandini for Bertone.

Now Mike Robinson is in charge of the Master Advanced Design IED Torino. And by knowing him he will do a very good job because is one of the best in communicating his ideas. The next video a talk with Cesar Mendosa, IED Torino’s director, is a very good explanation of the concept of advanced design.
