The Polestar Design Contest features a truly expert jury. Polestar Head of Design Maximilian Missoni, Senior Design Manager Juan Pablo Bernal and Car Design Research Director Sam Livingstone are the ones who will evaluate every submission, pore over every detail, and ultimately determine the winners of the contest.
They’ll also offer advice, guidance and feedback to designers during the process. A hallmark of the Polestar Design Contest, shortlisted contestants have personal sessions with both the jury members and Polestar Head of Sustainability Fredrika Klarén.
