Pitstop Drive

Pitstop Drive is a Design and Concept for a Car Interface focussed on safety and condition

Pitstop Drive can prevent accidents! Your car has many parts that can break, Pitstop Drive can tell you when they do.

Pitstop Drive is created by me and 7 other students for Teneco, a company that specializes in aftermarket car parts. Their brief was simple: let users test their own shock absorbers. We thought: why stop at shock absorbers?

We made Pitstop Drive, an interface for your car. Many build-in sensors actively monitor the condition of your car. When something is wrong you'll be notified in a manner that suits the situation. So no alarms and flashing colors while you're driving. The interface offers information about all parts and help in every situation. The goal is to make drivers feel and be safer.

Photoshop version 7 kick-started my design journey. Today I still use Photoshop daily, alongside Illustrator and InDesign. To me a perfect design is modular, accessible, and fun to look at. For me inspiration is important, so I’m alert and always on the lookout for cool images and designs.
