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.
See above to watch the jury discuss this year’s theme, their personal journeys through the world of car design, and more. And to learn more about this year’s contest, head on over to the Polestar Design Contest page.
Everything we produce today has an environmental footprint. EVs are no exception. But that doesn't have to be the case. Over time we can change how cars are made. And you can influence that progress.

The days of gasoline and diesel cars are numbered. Amsterdam is making this happen sooner rather than later, by 2030, all transportation in the city must be emissions free. And since unprecedented challenges and breaking with convention (especially those of the car industry) are two of our favourite things, we decided to investigate what that future may look like.
