Jump in, fasten your seat belt and join Cornelis (Cor) Steenstra as he takes you on a journey into the world of car design. Born and raised in the Netherlands, Cor started drawing cars, race cars, trucks, buses and trains at a very young age. Lucky for us, he never grew up. After graduating from the Royal College of Art’s Transportation Design program in London (UK), Cor worked for a variety of car manufacturers, including Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Mazda and Hyundai/Kia in Europe.
With his talents being noticed across the Atlantic, Cor decided to open up an independent car design consultancy with offices in California and the Netherlands. Since opening his consulting practice, he’s worked with Porsche, Nissan, Honda as well as Tesla and Fisker. Cor recognized early on the advantages of sketching, rendering and modeling with computers and design instruments like the Wacom pen. Cor will be sharing his design insights, his concepts and what it takes to be a car designer. Yes, he’ll draw for you too.
