Chevy Equinox - Case Study

Automotive Design is probably one of the most fascinating areas of design in my opinion. It exemplifies how style, branding, technology and constraints play together while creating a product. Kirill Ponomarenko illustrates this in a project completed during his GM Exterior Design internship in the Summer 2012 focused on the Chevy Equinox.

Kirill Ponomarenko is a industrial designer with BS Mechanical Engineering degree from Virginia Tech (2008), he has worked at the General Motors Aerodynamics group for over four years. While at GM, he also completed two exterior design internships in the summers of 2011 and 2012.

I'm passionate about cars, racing, entertainment art, soccer, snowboarding, ice cream, and many other things.
