Zi Kong

I have over 20 months of professional automotive and product design experience, working on projects for global brands like Fiat Industrial, Sea Ray boat group, priority design, TOMY international and Hasbro.

For my capstone I am designing an all new electric sport coupe that adapt to all life’s adventures for KIA.

I am Zi. I was born in a beautiful city of Guangzhou China. At 16 years old, I came to America in search for a higher education and more opportunities. After Graduating from Mason High school in 3 years, I joined the University of Cincinnati, and now here I am in my senior year as a DAAP student, majoring in Industrial design, Forcing on transportation.

Looking back, nothing surprised me more than the U.S culture, I felt different. From the music I listened to the food I ate, to the language I spoke. There one thing that kept me same was the similarity that we all shared, especially in design. There are certain that catch our eyes individually. And that’s why I want to be a designer, especially automotive design, because I like cars!
