Winter Time in Munich

Time flies and correspondingly my internship at BMW's is coming to its end.

However, a couple of weeks ago I took off with modeling my 1:4 scale clay model, with which I am already coming to an end. What still has to be done is mainly refining and detailing work which is a really lavish but also quite demotivating work, since the steps achieved in one day get more and more smaller and insignificant.

Moreover I was having a presentation with the chief exterior designer Anders Warming.
I will post some pictures of it by the end of the week.
Btw. I am getting wheels tomorrow, ftw!!!!

ANFIA Stile Italiano Giovani: YESSS :)

Hey guys!
I have just got an email by ANFIA, saying that I am one of the 20 chosen projects for the contest exhibition on September 17th in Turin, where few projects will be prized. Naturally, I hope for something coming out for me :) 

Everybody's welcome! :) 

Greetings

ANFIA concorso Stile Giovani



Hey out there!

My participation in this year's international Italian design contest for non-professional, with which a friend of mine won a prize two years ago.

Here my go: An oversized nightcruiser vehicle, offerin place to one passenger awake and two more sleeping or relaxing on the bed in the front of the car. It is basically the project I presented in my interview at Mercedes-Benz'.

Wish me luck!

Mercedes-Benz Internshi


Hi Guys,

good news, there's another internship for me! After I applied at 11 companies and already received BMW's ok for a 6 month internship, I've become an invitation to an interview at Mercedes-Benz' design centre in Sindelfingen, near Stuttgart...

Firstly, they wrote that I should apply once again next year, since I already have now an internship for the period I applied for. But however, it worked out and I travelled to Sindelfingen.
The next day I had my interview which actually went great. Some tim later i ot the OK.

BMW Internship

Hello Fellas,

actually since quite a while I have become the acception at BMW's design centre in Munich for a six-month-internship :) Having rejected an invitation for an application interview at Daimler's (since I thought to be accepted at BMW's) I got the message that I would, due to a misunderstanding, be able to only stay for three months at BMW's. What a shock this was! But after a very fortunate coincidence, basing on the requirements of my hopefully-future-university in Pforzheim I will now nevertheless be able to go for a 6-months one...

Design wise, there are some other things running; Firstly, I am going for an entry in the Italian ANFIA car design contest - probably with my Volkswagen Gepard super sports car. In addition there is a Polish competition having its deadline in the near future. Otherwise, I am preparing to do a small portfolio for my Daimler-interview on June 2nd. So stay tuned ;)

model


Well, finally I am able to post a picture of my matura model. Unfortunately, the surface of the car did turn out damn crappy, which really gets on my nervs. I should have worked very much more carefully with the foam core, and should then have sprayed filler on the car instead of not being carefully with the foam and then go over with filler mass.
Maybe i will rework the whole surface since I really can't see the model anymore...Hate it :D
On March 4 I am going to have my presentation about the whole project and then I will also very soon have my final exams and be ready for my after-school-life :)

However, the Mercedes-Benz Vision Sindelfingen project was an important experience for me. In case I get an internship this summer I will surely do a very much better job, I promise :-)

By the way I have already received two confirmation letters by Porsche and Mercedes-AMG. Daimler confirmed the arrival of my letter with an e-mail. But no answer yet by BMW...I am waiting....:)

Application

Finally, I have nearly finished working on my application (portfolio) for my planned twelfe-months internship. I have been drawing tons of sketches in the last weeks and month and picked out the best ones (and rendered some) for my folio. You can by the way see them on marcomercedes.deviantart com.
However, I have made a double page for Mercedes-Benz (with my matura work), Maybach, Volkswagen, Audi and last but not least BMW. In addition, I have decided to attach also a new suspension system designed by me. If it really works in reality, I do not know :D But it looks good :P
I am currently writing the application letters and the CVs, not only in german but also in italian, since I am also going to try my luck at Daimler's design centre at Villa Salazar in Como, Italy.
I do really hope that I am gonna be lucky somewhere, and get some nice internship ;-)
