|Jurassic World (2015)|
Check out Jurassic World concept art by Robert O. Simons!
While the production designer on Jurassic World is Ed Verreaux they looked to a veteran in the industry. Rick Carter, who worked on Jurassic Park and The Lost World: Jurassic Park II, came in to help. Carter said, "Since I was there for the first two Jurassic Parks, I was invited in by Steven [Spielberg] and Frank Marshall to come and try and set up something that would actually refer back to those first movies yet take us into the present tense. There’s a young director [Colin Trevorrow] who has come in who is fantastic, so I just – we went back and mined some of those things that we’ve done before but then how to bring them into a world now." The feel of the movie is in line with the other films even some of the sets are brand new like the Indominus Rex paddock which is similar to the Raptor paddock in the first film. One of the companies that worked on the film is Gadget-Bot, headed by Robert Simons and they shared a number of concept art paintings on their site.
Robert O. Simons is a professional concept artist who's worked on Hollywood movies like The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (2014), Ender's Game (2013) and The Thing (2011).

Official Jurassic World Summary
"22 years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park, Jurassic World, as originally envisioned by John Hammond. This new park is owned by the Patel Corporation. Owen, a member of Jurassic World’s on-site staff, conducts behavioural research on the Velociraptors. After many years, Jurassic World’s attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction, created to re-spark visitor interest, gravely backfires."Directed by Colin Trevorrow
