After graduating from the Art Center College of Design, Harald Belker fell into the dream design job of designing cars for Porsche. From there, Belker moved to Mercedes Benz in California where he had the privilege of working on the Smart Car as well as the 'S' and 'M' class models. Though Belker's early design work was focused on the industrial aspect of automotive design, he acquired a taste for entertainment design after he was offered the opportunity of designing the Batmobile for the movie, Batman and Robin. His list of credits boasts other such designs as the sport red Lexus and futuristic cars of Steven Spielberg's Minority Report; as well as the vehicle designs for Armageddon, Inspector Gadget, Cat in the Hat, and Tron Legacy. Belker describes his work as "graphically bold, with the sensitivity and vision to push new forms". He continues: "I like to design everything and I do. I am working on furniture, sports equipment, bags, toys, cars etc. I don't ever want to do the same thing over and over."
"Harald provides a very insightful look into his creative process for developing innovative car designs and renderings that pop. This set of tutorials is a great introduction to car design and rendering."
