Design - Studio Modelling

JLR Design can be split into creative and delivery pillars.

These teams work together to develop 2D drawings and engineering packages into Photo realistic images or animations and Physical properties. Opportunities exist within; 

Design Visualisation & Animation (DVA)


The DVA team are a highly creative and multi-faceted team that provide compelling and exciting Still Images, Animations, Virtual Presentation material and film assets, to the highest standards of visual quality. Using CG industry recognised software and processes, these creative outputs are used in presentation material that support Design in achieving gateways, facilitating Board reviews and a variety of other high-level reviews and events. From an initial concept all the way through a vehicle program to its launch to the world, the DVA team provide on-brand visual stimulus. 


As a member of the DVA team you will be multi-facing, interacting and collaborating with many customers both internal to Design and external across the wider business, including Digital suppliers. Using digital data from the CAS and surfacing teams, the DVA team are required to provide both creative and technical digital solutions that promote a vehicle concept or idea. As a vehicle moves towards the launch phase, the DVA team support a program with digital imagery, animations and film assets to highest levels of photorealism for use on social media platforms. Researching new processes, techniques and technologies is an important part of the role to ensure that the team stay at the forefront of Automotive Visualisation.
