Marek Reichman (born 1966) is an English[1][2] industrial designer currently working as Chief Creative Officer and studio head at Aston Martin.[3]

Early life and education

Reichman was born in Sheffield, then in the West Riding of Yorkshire.[4]to an English mother and father who immigrated from Poland,[5] was a blacksmith, and his family were car fanatics, sparking his interest in industrial design.[6] He graduated from Teesside University in Middlesbrough with a 1st class Honours degree in Industrial Design, and then studied Vehicle Design at the Royal College of Art in London,[4][7] as the first Land Rover student.[8]


He started his career in 1991 with Rover Cars. In 1995, after Rover's takeover by BMW, he moved to BMW Designworks in California, eventually becoming Senior Designer and leading the design direction of Land Rover future production models, the most significant of which was the 2003 Range Rover (L322).[7] In May 2005, he became Director of Design for Aston Martin.[9]

In 2008, by invitation, he became an assistant professor at the Royal College of Art.[4]

In June 2014, the Aston Martin DP-100 was unveiled, which is a concept car designed for the video game Gran Turismo 6.[11] In 2015 Reichman directed the design of the Aston Martin DB10 concept car, used in the James Bond film Spectre.[12]


Reichman was awarded an honorary doctorate by Teesside University in 2011.[4]


"My father worked as a blacksmith, which is why I grew up with knowledge of making things. It’s where I picked up my artistic skills, and realised that design surrounds us, whether it’s through a traditional method of designing or through a craft. Design is integral to the human race. My father is Polish, and my mother is English. I grew up in a family with many car fanatics. I wanted to be an industrial designer, to learn the science behind materials, so I studied industrial design to get the knowledge base."[13]
