Syd Mead is probably one of those people for whom you know his work, but you don’t know who he is. If you’re like me, and chances are you probably are since you’re reading this blog, then you’ve seen a few sci-fi movies. Certain classics like Bladerunner, or Tron, or perhaps 2010 stand out for not only their stories, but their portrayal of future technology.
Syd Mead is behind that portrayal. He’s a futurist, but also an artist and architect. Part of what he does is design and construct future worlds for films. I happened across a gallery of his work on Imgur that’s worth checking out and, if you want to know more about the man, dig his website. Good stuff all the way around.
