Following the unveiling of the QX Inspiration, INFINITI is launching a dual partnership with the ArtCenter College of Design in California and the College for Creative Studies in Michigan. The collaboration, including design students from Detroit and Los Angeles, will take place from January to May 2019.
Led by Alfonso Albaisa, senior vice president of global design at Nissan Motor Co., Ltd, and Karim Habib, executive design director at INFINITI Motor Company, Ltd., the program will create an opportunity for the two to interact with the next generation of automotive designers as they work to create the aesthetics of a future SUV. Throughout the four-month programme, the duo will provide the schools with invaluable insights on company culture and design.
Two students, chosen by Albaisa and Habib in May, will have the opportunity to intern at INFINITI’s Global Design Center in Kanagawa, Japan.
