Constance Smith has always been passionate about art, design, and automobiles. When she was a teen, her father fought for her place in an all-male drafting class. Smith holds a bachelor of fine arts degree and a master’s degree in industrial design from Pratt Institute, where she studied with Rowena Reed Kostellow. Before graduation, she was recruited by GM’s Charles Jordan, and her portfolio included models of a safety car and perhaps the first heated/cooled storage compartment. After joining GM’s Advanced Studio, she explored state-of-the-art electronics and the implementation of airbags. Smith has also worked for automobile franchises, schools, Charles Pollock, and Cox Automotive.
