About Directory

The Car Design News Directory is a resource which collates information useful for the automotive design community. It is organised in three classes: OEMssuppliers (both tier suppliers and providers of design services & tools, including independent studios); and design schools.

The boundaries of what we have included, and what is 'useful', are somewhat flexible.

For example, in the OEMs section we list only marques which are currently in production. And part of our judgement about whether to include a design school is based on whether its students have entered one of our car design competitions (we have had a winner from a school of ceramics, for example).

The basic entry in each of the three classes shows location and a link to a website. For OEMs, we list by individual marque, the location of its principal studio, a short summary of its history and current status, and its parent car company. For suppliers we identify the principal specialism. 

Is your organisation included?

If it's not, and you think it should be, please email us and we'll consider adding it. A basic entry is free.

Much more detailed information can be added to any of the entries. As well as text and images, you can include social media links, video links, location maps, specific contacts, your Twitter feed, RSS feed, and more. We will help you display the information effectively.

Examples of these extended entries are:

We hope the Directory information is indeed useful. As ever, we welcome your feedback.
