Local Motors is a design competition which challenges designers to come up with a car that represents a specific city. The current challenge winners were just announced for the Chicago Local Motors competition. As always, the designs are scintillating. Some of the designs play with Chicago’s gangster image, but most take other factors of the city’s rich heritage into account.
Implications - The recession has forced many families to stay at home rather than travel abroad for vacation, and this renewed interest in the local community has been an inspiration for designers. These art cars double as marketing campaigns for the city, inspiring pride in citizens and jealousy in neighboring locations.
