“My advice would be to look beyond the automobile industry…”
Joshua Hoffeld is one of Art Center’s more recent graduates to have broken into the design field, only he’s done it in aviation rather than automotive design. Since January, he’s been working as an exterior and interior designer at Hawker Beechcraft Corporation, a leading aircraft manufacturer. Having lost much of his hearing as a child, Hoffeld has faced—and overcome—special challenges in getting to where he is now.
