Kouhei Kawakami Automotive Designer, Mazda Motor Corporation, Japan
Bachelor of Industrial Design (honours) 2013

I’ve wanted to design cars since I was a small child. I’ve always had a passion for automobiles and I love drawing. My job as an automotive designer allows me to express my passion and creativity, and I get to work with a wide variety of people to create new and existing cars for the future.

Monash University is well known as the best and most competitive university to study industrial / transport design in Australia. Monash helped me broaden my understanding of the principles of good design and taught me the skills and knowledge I needed to become competitive in the global marketplace.
