I got to meet Syd Mead at VCU School of the Arts back in 2007 when he accepted my invitation to come and speak with our students. Syd was very generous with his time and gave an exceptional talk about his work, technique and career trajectory. I'm a huge fan of his design aesthetic, use of color contrast and composition. He is a true modern master. Click on the images below to visit his website where you can purchase books of his amazing work. In the short video at the bottom, you can hear Syd reflecting on the nature of creativity and how it drives the future.
Visual Futurist Syd Mead ("Blade Runner," "Aliens," "Tron") reflects upon the nature of creativity and how it drives the future. Photographed in P2 High Definition, this featurette provides insight into the fascinating mind of one of the most influential artists of modern cinema and automotive design.
