I graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena California  in 1978. Upon graduation, I started my professional career with Ford  Motor Corporation in Dearborn Michigan, Mitsubishi Motors America in  Cypress California, Volkswagen AG of Germany, Volkswagen of America in  Simi Valley California, Hyundai & kia Motor Car company of Korea and  currently designing and  consulting for other product design firms. In  1998   I decided to take a change in my career path and give my  knowledge back to the academia world. I started with the Academy of Art  University and was given the opportunity to start a design program in  Automotive and Industrial Design. Hired as the Director in June 1998,  I   Managed and hired a multi-cultural international staff of 35 and  developed a curriculum and syllabus that still is in effect today. The  department now has grown to over 500 students and continues to evolve  into a well respected institution for industrial design development.  Today I am on the Board of Directors and I still continue to monitor  &  mentor the student body.  I have been in the automobile and  product design business now for over 25 years. 9 years ago and decided  to develop and start my own business named Teague Design International  Inc. with another company named Black Widow Design LLC as a product  design firm to develop alternate fuel vehicles . Located in Agoura Hills  California. TDII is a design Consulting of services for today’s  automotive OEM’s and product firms. I believe that successful design  always starts with a brand audit followed by design research. This is  the best way to define your vision and develop optimum design strategy.
