Check out Star Trek Into Darkness Klingon designs by Neville Page!
When talking about the new design of the Klingons director J.J. Abrams said, "I thought the [new] design was incredibly cool. We have a designer, Neville Page, who came up with a great design and we feel like [it was] in the realm of what people knew... but a distinct difference. It also shows that this Star Trek was not trying to copy what was done nearly 50 years ago, but find its own rhythm, its own universe. It just felt like the right choice. "
Page is a professional concept artist who's worked on Hollywood movies like Cloverfield (2009), Avatar (2009) and Prometheus (2012)
He's updated his site nevillepage.com with concept art for the film and talked about the designs.

First, here's what the redesigned Klingons looked like in the film.
Here's what he said about the designs.
"J.J. Abrams was kind enough to have me on board another Star Trek. It was not too dissimilar to the first experience, other than I was too busy to be cast as an Alien this time. Then again, I did go down with the ship in the previous one.
"This first round of images are some of the development of the Klingons. This was a very important assignment for me because I knew how important it was to the fans of the franchise. It was a delicate balance of respecting the established looks from previous incarnations yet delivering something appropriate for JJ's film." - Neville Page
"Part of my self induced criteria was to do a cleaner version (especially regarding the forehead) and to make them sexy (or sexier if you already find them sexy!)" - Neville Page
