“Our vision is to become proud creators of the world’s most desirable modern luxury brands for the world’s most discerning clients.

Professor Gerry McGovern OBE, Chief Creative Officer

Modern Luxury embraces our Modernist Design Philosophy to authentically build desirability and emotional engagement for our brands. We’re on an exciting journey – creating four distinct brands with their own purpose, insight, benefit and personalities – each built on a foundation of exemplary British design and craftsmanship that elevates the end-to-end client experience.

Creative is a multi-disciplinary department, boasting over 700 proud creators. An inclusive and diverse international team from a wide range of industry backgrounds, we work together to create vehicles, experiences and services that truly resonate with our clients.

From our state-of-the-art design studios in Gaydon, Warwickshire, we offer our teams an inspirational place to work and interact in a creative, collaborative space to deliver our Modern Luxury vision for Range Rover, Defender, Discovery and Jaguar.

MEET MASSIMO FRASCELLA, DESIGN DIRECTOR

As Design Director for Range Rover, Defender, Discovery and Jaguar, Massimo Frascella oversees all aspects of exterior and interior design from concept to delivery. Massimo has a pivotal role in the design evolution of each of these much-loved British marques.

Starting his career in Turin, Massimo completed a transportation design degree at Instituto D’Arte Applicata & Design in 1997 before taking on his first design position at Stile Bertone. This was followed by influential roles at Lincoln Mercury and Kia Motors, before joining Land Rover as Creative Studio Chief in 2011.

Applying a modernist design philosophy, his influence can be seen in every vehicle of the last decade, from the elegantly reductive Range Rover Velar to the reimagined iconic Defender and the fifth generation Range Rover – a vehicle of peerless refinement and breathtaking modernity.

Since 2020 Massimo has also directed the design of the radical reimagining of the Jaguar brand.

“Working with such a passionate and creative team is truly inspiring – it’s a great privilege to love what you do and to share that every day with your colleagues. Design is the creative heart of our brands and the gateway to delivering vehicles and experiences that connect emotionally with our clients. Our role is to imagine the future, creating exciting concepts that inspire the business.”
