Advice

Automobile R&D Center, Design Studio
Joined Honda R&D in 2012,
Architecture Art Major

I joined the workshop out of fascination with package layout that determines the framework for people and automobiles, through my background in architecture at university and my involvement with Honda's automobiles from childhood.
Attending the workshop was a valuable experience, as I learned from actual designers the importance of package layout in Honda's designs.
This experience connived me to join Honda, and now I am enjoying my work alongside the designers who I met at the workshop.
I urge you to join in and take the opportunity to learn, and experience the job of your choice.

Motorcycle R&D Center, Design Studio
Joined Honda in 2006,
Product Design Major

The workshop I attended involved determining color schemes from concept, to coloring the actual vehicle. I was fascinated by how many steps were required to finalize even a single color.
The designers acted as our advisors, and through their dedication to work with glimmers of lightheartedness, I became attracted to taking part in such a fun atmosphere, in which "fun products are made through serious fun."
Even if you don't know much about motorcycles, you may find what you want to do by joining the workshop. Don't hesitate, you'll enjoy yourself.
