Vanessa Chang takes the reins at the Shanghai studio for BMW Group Designworks

Vanessa Chang has been appointed director of the BMW Designworks Shanghai studio. She will oversee a team of 40 creatives, drawing on her experience working in design throughout China. 

“China is a market that is changing faster than you can say ‘disruption´”, said Holger Hampf, president of Designworks. “Therefore, the mission of our Shanghai studio has always been to be optimistic about the future, responsible about the impact it creates, and unafraid to challenge the system, ourselves, our partners and the rules. Moving into the future, we believe Vanessa Chang is the right person to help us deliver on that mission.”
