Retro Futurism – The Art of Syd Mead

I have always been fascinated by the illustrations of visual futurist, Syd Mead. His images transport you to another fantastical time in the future, but because of their period, are still firmly rooted in the Mid Century. He is best known for his designs for science-fiction films such as Blade Runner, Aliens and Tron. Of his work, Mead was once moved to comment: “I’ve called science fiction ‘reality ahead of schedule.'”
