Interior aesthetics: an experience-focused approach for the design of brand-specific automotive identity
by Anders Warell, Kenneth Young
International Journal of Vehicle Design (IJVD), Vol. 55, No. 2/3/4, 2011

Abstract: In this research, two objectives were pursued. Firstly, to develop an experience-focused approach to design, based on a framework for perceptual product experience, and, secondly, to test and verify the proposed methodology through an interior design study of the Hulme.F1 supercar. In the process, experience design criteria were developed, which served creative and evaluative purposes. The final design proposal was assessed by an external lead user group through a subjective qualitative-quantitative survey study. The evaluation suggested that targeted design intentions were successfully met with respect to visual product brand identity as well as visual-aesthetic coherence between interior and exterior design.
