                                In <a href="http://www.cleverpodcast.com/blog/ep-52-oliver-heilmer"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">this episode of Clever</a>, Amy and Jaime talk to car designer Oliver Heilmer, who has known he wanted to go into auto design since he was a little kid fascinated by tractors on his grandmother’s farm. He grew up in Munich, Germany drawing machines and vehicles on any paper available, and then studied industrial and automobile design in school. Soon after graduation, he landed a job with BMW Group and has been there ever since. Now, as the head of MINI Design, he’s dedicated to designing for innovation and emotion. This is a long-term love affair, indeed.
