Jacques Ostiguy, a beloved Industrial Design professor

One of my beloved industrial design teachers from Carleton University recently had an article posted about his life in automotive design and academia. He was a great teacher, maybe a little odd, but he taugh his students to be passionate, detailed and creative.

Our class recalls his advice that we only drink high quality alcohol in order to mitigate the hangovers we didn’t have time for as designers.


From the article ” It’s hard to tell whether industrial design professor Jacques Ostiguy was crazy or a genius, or both. Either way, he’s almost definitely the most eccentric French-Canadian car designer you’ve never heard of.”
