“Design should be allowed to be complex. Clear-cut lines are an option, but not a necessity. You should allow for the image to be intense, visually and especially emotionally,” Bannink says. Thirteen years ago, he founded Alexander Bannink Industrial Design (ABID). “I always try to create value for my clients. Form doesn’t always follow function, especially in transport design where manufacturability combined with emotion are more essential.” Bannink has a special interest in transport design because of the movability of vehicles, which adds an extra dimension to their design.
