The Retro Future: The Art of Syd Mead

This week I wanted to feature the futurist art of Syd Mead. You may know of his work without ever knowing his name, due to him being the creative genius behind the visuals of TRON. All of his work is soaked in nostalgia and beautiful retro futuristic concepts. If you want more of Mead there is a great Flickr with scans of his work which you can look at Here

If you really want get into the nostalgia zone, try listening to this while sifting through his artwork.


  1. There choice in music is perfect, there is something inherently "Meadsian" in Oneohtrix Point Never's music, I don't know why, both go well together. Nice blog, btw.

  2. I know that it is an old post but... Just wanted to say that almost none of the images are actually from Syd Mead but from a competition that CGSociety weld a long time ago in tribute to him.
