Miguel Herranz is an Industrial Designer, Creative Director, Design Thinking Consultant, and Automotive Designer.
He is the creator of The Conceptual Nebula, an analytical-emotional process based on the analysis of the three core elements found in every project, culture, industry, and society, and on the creation of emotional connections that truly link these three cores, thus achieving a deep depth in the target audience, from the company’s philosophy and under a certain cultural lens.
The Conceptual Nebula is a creative process, a generator of business models and personal branding, and a Strategy and Innovation Management tool to create community from the company/person’s DNA generating emotional connections.
The approach is equally valid for tackling an industrial design project as it is for developing a corporate project. It is a highly useful tool both for designing products and business models, and provides each project with a different conceptual tool, a different methodology for each project.
Miguel Herranz is author of singular industrial design projects meeting a multitude of goals and needs since 1994. He has worked on technical and conceptual projects and always with a commercial approach in any field. In relation to the conceptual automotive design, he engaged in a joint development project with SUBARU and was the designer of the Plasma 1995 supermodel that is part of the of Bernie Ecclestone’sprivate collection. He is currently focused on designing an electric car from a more conceptual approach, from The Conceptual Nebula.
