Tustin, California, March 13th, 2017 – Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot®, the first real-time ray-tracing and global illumination program for 3D rendering and animation, today announced that Chip Foose, renowned automobile designer and star of reality television series OVERHAULIN, will present the Monday keynote at KeyShot RenderWorld 2017.

Chip Foose has a lifetime of automotive design experience, from working as a young boy for his father’s company, Project Design, to creating a worldwide brand and hot-rod designs no one else could imagine. Since the early 80’s, he has developed concepts of proprietary designs and custom prototypes, held roles as chief designer and director of design, and defined the style of many vehicles over many years, until starting his own automotive and product development company, Foose Design, in 1998. Driven by a passion for automotive design and surrounding himself with others of the same mind, he pursues the desire to build the best – to build something no one has seen before.

His process was brought to millions in the television series OVERHAULIN’ where Chip and team transformed over 100 vehicles over 9 seasons. Chip’s legacy stretches far beyond the television show, however, with years of style-defining design, honors, awards, and induction into many automotive halls of fame and, ultimately, within the walls of Foose Design headquarters where, together with his wife Lynne, he continues to create the world’s most iconic automobile designs.

Luxion is excited to host Chip Foose as keynote speaker at KeyShot RenderWorld 2017, where attendees will have the opportunity to hear his unique insight into product development, learn what drives him and see the passion behind his business and design process.
