Designed in Canada: Canadian Designers in Profile

Every car starts as an idea, formed through a process that we call design. How important is design in telling if a car is Canadian? Is there something about the way a car looks—its form—that we recognize as Canadian? Or is it a car’s pistons and gears—its function—that truly matters?

Meet a couple of Canadian car designers, see how they work, and learn about the process of car design. Decide for yourself whether design is what makes a car Canadian.
