NORI, inc., announced it will start an English version of its car design educational program on Feb. 6, 2015. Known as the Car Design Academy, it is supervised by Nori Kurihara, an internationally renowned designer in the automotive field.
The program offers students a chance to learn and acquire fundamental skills necessary for all car designers such as sketching techniques and styling design through an online study system that utilizes original textbooks and videos created specifically for this program.
NORI created the program to help students avoid the exorbitant costs of taking specialized courses in college. The company claims that many students had to give up their dream to become a car designer because of this expense, so by offering an online program, it states that a high quality educational program is now easily accessible to all students.
