about

Exploring Ford UK's design studios during the past 70 years,Ford Design in the UK-70 Years of Successprovides a unique insight into the company's history, its UK studio locations, and delves into the lives of the designers, modellers and studio engineers.
As a profession, automotive design has changed hugely over the past century and continues to evolve as new processes are developed. This book charts the development of Ford projects in the UK, particularly those designed in the Dunton studio, which opened in 1967 and is still a key part of Ford's design resource in Europe.
