During our most recent episode of the BMWBLOG Podcast, we talked to renowned automotive designer Frank Stephenson. You may have recently learned about Stephenson from his YouTube channel, which has become quite popular among automotive publications, as he often talks about the designs of interesting cars and recreates his own automotive designs, while walking the viewers through them.
Among the cars Stephenson has designed throughout his career were the new MINI , which BMW launched in 1999. He tells the story of how that design came to be and what it was like to redesign such an iconic car. The original Mini was not only beloved but it was an icon of both the automotive and fashion industries. So there was a ton of pressure to get that right.
