Phillip Zmood - RMIT University visit

RMIT University industrial and interior design students were treated to a lecture by RMIT alumni and automotive design legend Phillip Zmood this evening. Always humble Phillip provided insights into design practice and process and to the talents of teams of designers he has had the pleasure to manage as a design director with General Motors. The obvious delight in the early career work and questions like "Why didn't the GTRX become a production car?" showed the audience were well informed. Discussions about gender and interior vs exterior design priorities were canvased. Phillip also joined third and fourth year industrial design students in the wacom lab for Bernie Walsh's extremely popular automotive concept sketching elective.

Phillip Zmood presents early career work including the original sketches, tape drawing and clay model for the GTRX Holden Torana.
