This December brings ‘The Car Design News People Awards’ – an award that focuses on automotive design and celebrates talent at all levels, in all teams across the industry.  This is the first time the well-respected CDN team have hosted such an event, and we are proud to be sponsoring the Best CMF Team category at the launch in London.

In sponsoring the Best CMF award, we celebrate some amazing talent in the industry and their innovative use of materials and colours.

The judging panel is made up of some serious names in Automotive design from leading OEMs including Hyundai, Volkswagen Group, Mahindra, Tata Motors and more… It’s their job to celebrate and recognise the people behind the cars.  There are 14 categories in total that cover everything from undiscovered talent and most sustainable design through to best clay modeller!

This event is the chance for some unsung heroes to shine, as well as an opportunity for many people in the industry to get together and celebrate the ongoing innovation within automotive design.

Karl Hartung, Business Development Manager – Automotive at ELeather said “Being relatively new to the Automotive market makes this a very exciting event to be part of. We are looking forward to networking with a great crowd of experts and talented individuals, as well as giving us the opportunity to learn how much of interior design is driven by sustainability. This is a subject close to our hearts, which I recently spoke about at Hyundai European HQ. Achieving sustainable luxury is possible today and together the industry can make significant steps forward in the climate change challenge.”

We wish all entrants the very best of luck and we look forward to celebrating their success on the night!
