Design a New Nissan During Lockdown

Do you draw cars? Have you ever looked at a car and thought what you would have done differently? Do you see yourself as a budding car designer? Seeing that you are stuck at home, why not join Nissan’s worldwide team of designers and see if you can improve what they do, or even come up with something new. A new Nissan by You!

Nissan’s senior vice president for global design explains. “To draw, draw, draw, in our world, is one of the best ways to close the gap between wonderful creative impulses in your head and making it a reality.”

“Our team of designers, worldwide, are using this time to breathe, to draw, to dream creatively. Some of their best work will come from the challenges that we’re facing now. So why not give everyone a chance to express themselves creatively and share it with those who will appreciate it?”

Albaisa is launching this effort with a video from his home, and with input from his two young sons, showing what he is currently drawing and why.

The inspiration for this project came from Nissan designer Giovanny Arroba – responsible for the Ariya Concept – who was asked for advice on how to become a car designer. He said you simply have to draw like crazy. Draw, draw, draw.

Nissan global design team added spice to this idea with a social project called #DrawDrawDraw – you draw your dream cars, scan it or take a pic and post it on the social medium of your choice with the # above. Just remember, no punctuation please.

To help you get started, Nissan designers from around the world have created 23 pages of classic cars, current models and futuristic concepts. You can print them and give them different paint jobs, or use them as inspiration for your own design. If you have kids, they can colour these in and perhaps take the first step towards becoming a car designer? You can download the pages here.

“We’re looking forward to celebrating passion and creativity,” said Albaisa. “Don’t be surprised if you see a Nissan designer comment on your drawings and artwork.”
