Inside Look at Ford and Art Center Students

In town for the EcoStilleto salon, three senior execs from Ford Motor Company’s Design and Sustainability team recently made a special trip to Art Center for an informal–and insightful–chat with a number of students and faculty.

Carol Kordich, Global Fabric Strategy/Sustainable Materials Lead Designer; Susan Svek, Group Chief Designer, Color and Material Design; and Anthony Prozzi, Senior Interior Designer, discussed the use of sustainable materials in auto manufacturing, the psychology of color and materials, and the ways in which history and culture influence design.

As summarized on the Ford Social website, “The interaction between the students and working professionals brought insight to both groups, and gave them a window into the ideas, philosophies and priorities of each other.”
