When designing the computer world of Tron Legacy, the sequel took one very important design cue for the film: light. Darren GIiford, the production designer, told NPR about the designs and you can read more below. Plus, see brilliant style guides by Dylan Cole that show some designs from the film. Cole is a professional matte and concept artist who's worked on Hollywood movies like The Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2003), Oz the Great and Powerful (2013) and I, Robot (2004) .

"The entire universe of Tron, in theory, comes from the mind of one man, which is Kevin Flynn, gives you an opportunity to design a complete universe that's seamless and cohesive, together as a unit." Gilford said, "So everything from costumes to sets, to vehicles, to architecture, to make it look like it's all tied together was the challenge.
"Everything you see in - once we're inside the computer, in that world, is theoretically from the, you know, the creator, who is Kevin Flynn. So, you know, to tie all this together, we really needed a design cue that would kind of wrap all this together, and light lines were the key for us and how we use light lines and the proportions of light lines and how they were rectilinear and then they would turn a corner but still keep a form, not get super organic."
The illustrations are from Dylan Cole with character illustrations by Phil Saunders and renders by Ben Procter.
