Last year, over a period of a few months, I worked on a book called Global Design Travelogue. The book tells the story of the design and the designers that represent Mercedes from around the world. Commissioned by Car Design News and the brainchild of Gorden Wagener, CDO of Daimler AG, I spent time visiting design studios in Germany, Oregon and California. I photographed the people, the places, the machinery and the details. All this is now contained in a beautifully put together book. Here are a handful of the images from the book.
