Once referred to as Ford’s “Rock Star Designer,” Camilo Pardo was the chief designer behind the “breathtaking” Ford GT. A 1985 graduate of the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Pardo worked at Ford as a designer of the T-Bird and Lincoln LS then went on to head the “Living Legends” studio where the famous Ford GT was created. A native of New York, Camilo knew at an early age he would be a designer.
Not only does he design automobiles, but fashion and furniture as well. His work has been featured in shows from Monaco to Paris to the Detroit Institute of Art. His automotible art tends to be large scale with bold slashes of color. He continues to live and work at his studio in Detroit and is just now opening a new studio in Los Angeles.
