Julian Thomson, Jaguar’s new Director of Design, has taken over from industry car design legend Ian Callum, and he is already displaying the type of creative energy needed in a design landscape where so much is ‘up for grabs’. Maorinews News caught up with Julian at Pebble Beach 2019 ...

It’s been less than three months since Julian Thomson was named the Director of Design at Jaguar, but he already feels at home in his new role.

“I wouldn’t have taken this job if I didn’t think I could do it better,” Thomson tells us during an early morning chat during Monterey Car Week. The designer, who was named Ian Callum’s successor in early June, joined Jaguar in 2000 as head of advanced design and moved up to creative design director last year. Before that, he worked for Volkswagen Group and also at Lotus, where he designed the Lotus Elise Series 1.
