Autoline TV is an online network dedicated to covering all aspects of the auto industry, and a recent, welcome addition to their YouTube channel is a segment called "Design Handbook." In it, industry analyst (and Art Center Transportation Design alumnus) Jim Hall discusses the nuts and bolts of car design, like why the gas tank is on the left or right, the "secrets" of sports car proportions, and definitions of industry terms ("bone line," anyone?).
In the video below, Hall breaks down the difference between car styling and car design, a distinction that's often as lost by those not in the know as it is hotly debated by those who are in the know. We think not all of you will agree with his assertions, and it is of course difficult to draw that line (so to speak) between the two verbs, so we're curious to hear what you think.
Given Hall's definitions, would you consider, say, Dieter Rams' stuff to be styled or designed?
