Syd Mead did a lot of amazing illustrations for the film Tron (1982). Specifically, Sark’s carrier and camp, the tanks, the CPU, various scenic sets and graphics; title graphic and alpha numeric “TRON” typeface. Those designs would help shape the imagery of films and television for decades.An industrial designer by trade he was one of three concept artists called in to help bring Steven Lisberger's vision to life. I'll feature more concept art from Jean Giraud (aka Moebius) and Peter Lloyd later on.

Interestingly, Syd Mead's original vision of seeing the rider of the cycle would only be realized by the sequel Tron: Legacy (2011)
