While the plot of Intersteallar is fantastical, the ships for his film are not, Christopher Nolan said, "For me, the starting point of the movie is a familiar Earth. We didn't put a lot of futurism in the designs. I wanted to carry that tone into the spacecraft, not jump too far in the future." He and his production designer Nathan Crowley used existing spacecraft designs and spent months coming up initial designs. Those designs were then refined by his team including artist Steve Burg.
Burg shared some of his concept art for the film at his Facebook page. Burg is a professional concept artist who's worked on big budget films like The Matrix (1999), Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and X-Men (2000).
