Daniel Simon

Welcome

Simon describes his work as a disruptive fusion of automotive styling, innovative engineering, and world-building aspiration, summarized as ‘Style for all Galaxies’. The results are vehicles for the present, the future, and imagined pasts.

The concepts are always original, yet radiate a strategic familiarity and logic. With an obsession for detail, and a passion spanning many disciplines, such as car design, motorsports, aviation, naval architecture, engineering, industrial design, graphic design, fashion, and storytelling, Simon strives to deliver holistic vehicles populating land, air, water, and space, for clients in large and small corporations, product innovators, motion picture industries, and gaming companies.

Occasionally, Simon gives talks at conferences, corporate events, and universities, or runs entire workshops for businesses.
