SAIC Advanced Design - Birmingham1.jpg (1)

Earlier this year we announced the expansion of our SAIC Advanced Design teams at both of our U.K. studios in Birmingham and London.  We are a well-established, but dynamic, international design team offering a unique opportunity to take a role of shaping future vehicle product design and brand vision. There are currently 30 people permanently based in the U.K studios, which will increase to 50 with the recruitment of a number of vacancies at different levels.  The growth of the two studios is as a direct result of the recent repositioning of U.K. Design to be a dedicated Advanced Design operation, exploring future design concepts and future mobility projects for both MG and Roewe brands.

Both studios offer unique aspects to the design process, with London as a digital studio, deploying state-of the-art software, technology and facilities to develop ideas, whilst Birmingham retains the ability to produce physical properties on its five-axis milling machines, allowing the whole U.K. design team to articulate their vision and bring their ideas to life.  The use of virtual reality development tools across the studios allows for concurrent creative reviews across the global advanced studios, generating opportunities for collaboration, resulting in an integrated understanding of the design intention and characteristics, helping to provide a broader input to the design language of both MG and Roewe brands.
