Design director


Ian Callum's career has spanned from Ford to Aston Martin including the Cosworth Escort, Aston DB7 and Vanquish.

He joined Jaguar in 1999 but continued to manage Aston Martin Design – developing the DB9 as well as directing Jaguar Design where he and his team created, amongst others, the R-Coupe, RD-6, C-X75 and C-X17 concepts.

September 2014 saw the launch of the Jaguar XE, a new car to the Jaguar family which Ian designed for a very competitive segment. This has just been followed by the introduction of the second generation XF.

As well as topping The Drum’s Designerati 2015 Callum was awarded the Minerva Medal by the Chartered Society of Designers for his outstanding contribution to automotive design.

As a result of his number one status in the Designerati, Callum was also named Designer of the Year at The Drum Design Awards 2015.
