Italdesign Giugiaro App.
Moncalieri, Italy. June 16th, 2011.
Starting today, design enthusiasts can literally carry an important part of the automotive history and the italian design in their pockets: the application “Giugiaro Timeline” is now also available for the iPhone 4, the iPhone 3G and the iPod Touch, needless to say, it’s free.
Implemented by the Italian web agency Easybit, Giugiaro Timeline for the iPhone and the iPod Touch offers the same features as the iPad version. With the Giugiaro Timeline app, everyone can take a look at the projects developed by the Italian coachbuilder Italdesign Giugiaro and by the industrial design division Giugiaro Design.
Users can slide forward and backward the timeline with their fingers, among thousands of pictures and information telling the story of the company founded by Giorgetto Giugiaro in 1968.
In addition to the cars and everyday-life objects, historic key-moments are included. The awards (5 ADI Compasso d’Oro – to the Panda, Punto, Brera dental system Isotron and to the career; 2 Goldene Lenkräder to Punto and the career) or the prestigious “Car Designer of the Century” are shown as well. User can also look at the 1983 Newsweek edition, where an article was dedicated to the “Marille”, the first pasta ever designed by a car designer. Or, more recently, the 2005 Time cover where USA star LeBron James tightly holds the Molten GL7 basketball by Giugiaro Design in his hands.
