Priming the pump - Driven by Design

Over this past weekend, the first sample entry for a Local Motors competition was reviewed by the team.

Portfolios of work have been building in our beta site from designers across the world, and this entry is the beginning of work actually being designed for our community with the intent that it be built and brought to market.

It is a First, and we are stoked about the power and potential of this design-driven market. The automotive design world has been awaiting such an independent engine, and we are delighted and humbled to see it ignite.

Over the course of the next week we will display such sample entries and further instructions on how best to create a submission, so that when we officially start the first competition on April 1, all of our entrants have the best idea of what is expected by the community in order to be competitive.

For the following work in progress, thank you to Jonathan Kasumba, a Local Motors Charter Member from Uganda!
