About the Author
Christian Grajewski is a professional automotive interior and industrial designer. After training as a metal worker by building lifeboats, he decided to follow his passion and study product design at the Hochschule Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Christian earned his Diplom (FH) degree as a designer in summer 2008. In July 2008, he started working for the Volkswagen Group Future Center Europe GmbH in Potsdam, Germany, as an interior designer. During his eight years at the studio, he was able to work for Audi, Porsche, Lamborghini, Bentley, Bugatti, Seat, Skoda, and VW on concept projects Estoque, Aventador, and Huracán from Lamborghini; the VW Milano Taxi and Taigun; as well as the Bentley EXP 12 Speed 6e. In January 2016, he started a one-year sabbatical to work on his own project and improve his skills. He started working again for the Volkswagen Group Future Center Europe GmbH in January 2017, but decided to leave his job in October 2017 to follow his dream of creating Explorer: Futuristic Vehicles for Uncharted Lands. Though from November 2017 to February 2018 he worked as an industrial designer for the autonomous robotic startup Zoox, in March 2018 he started a second sabbatical to continue working on his private project. Christian strives to improve his skills as much as possible as a creative person. His favorite software tools include Autodesk Alias Surface, Fusion 360, ZBrush, KeyShot, Octane, Cinema 4D, Photoshop, Illustrator, Daz 3D, and Marvelous Designer.
