Jaguar has launched a four-part masterclass series that gives insight into the creative design process of Jaguar. Hosted by Jaguar designers, the series follows the progress of the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE through the initial design stages, with expert advice and tips from each of the disciplines featured in the films.
Just like in the design studio, the process begins with sketching. Chief Creative Designer Dominic Najafi gives a tutorial on sketching the I-PACE with a pencil and paper before handing over to Matthew Beaven, Chief Exterior Designer, who then transforms the preliminary sketch idea into a professional digital render using Photoshop.
The third film follows Chris Scholes, Senior Alias Modeller as he creates an exterior design proposal, taking the 2D digital render and developing it into 3D surfaces using Autodesk Alias software. Finally, CG Artist Elliot Brett from the Design Visualization team brings the I-PACE to life, detailing how it is taken from storyboard through to animation.
