Concept painting for Credit Subscription Commuter Cars, originally designed for Philips and published in Playboy magazine (1970). From Syd Mead's book Sentinel. - The idea behind the design was a plan, drawn up in cooperation with the Dutch government, to make a fleet of small vehicles available to the public within the three-canal perimeter of Central Amsterdam, on a credit-subscription basis.

Syd Mead, (born 1933 US) is a "visual futurist" and concept artist. He is best known for his designs for science-fiction films such as Blade Runner, Aliens and Tron. Of his work, Mead was once moved to comment: "I've called science fiction "reality ahead of schedule."
Сидни Джей Мид, или просто Сид Мид (Syd Mead) - индустриальный дизайнер и визуальный футурист, родился 18 июля 1933 в городе Сент-Пол, штат Миннесота. Он известен прежде всего своими работами для научно-фантастических фильмов, таких как "Бегущий по лезвию", Чужие, и Трон. В одной из своих работ Мид сказал: "Я бы назвал научную фантастику "действительностью раньше срока'".

В дизайне транспорта, своей первой любви, Сид Мид редко упускает возможность проявить свою уникальную смесь футуризма и натуральности. Будь то дизайн унисайклов на солнечных батареях, автомобилей, роскошных яхт, интерьера Боинга-747, каждый проект отличается вниманием к деталям и просчитанным дизайном.

Он никогда не рисует свои автомобили просто на белом листе – всегда дорисовывает к ним окружение: части зданий, улиц. Сид считает, что нельзя рисовать концепты транспортных средств в отрыве от их «среды обитания», ведь есть некое пространство, в котором они «живут» и которое «живет» вместе с ними.

Syd Mead was one of the world’s best transportation and architectural designer artist of all times. Syd was born on July 18, 1933 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. In 1959, Syd graduated from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. His first job was at Ford Motor Company’s advance Styling Studio under the direction of Mr. Elwood Engel. The concept artist also worked with Mr. Alex Tremulis, designer of the Tucker automobile.

In 1957, Alex and Syd designed a concept car for Ford called the Gyron, which was a two-wheeled vehicle of the future. However, after only two years with Ford's design team, Syd left Ford's studio to pursue a career in illustrating books and catalogs for other manufacturing companies such as United States Steel, Celanese, and Allis Chambers. In the 1960s, the United States Steel provided books that were very inspiring and had superb transportation design art work for review.

Syd had a futuristic vision and a creative idea for a future world. The design concepts illustrated by Syd were a tool of education, a theater of entertainment, and a symbol of status. Syd's evolution in automotive design and engineering were the proliferation of vehicle types to serve the diverse needs of the market. This added dimensions and opportunities for applying new steels and developing new techniques for utilizing familiar steel products.

In 1975, Syd moved to California where he published his own book titled "Sentinel" which features a collection of his works from various projects. Syd's other work includes motion pictures films such as Star Trek, Tron, and Alien movies. Syd also designed a 747 interior a yacht and the spaceship 2056 pavilion in Japan. Several magazines have featured Syd's art work and designs.

In 1998, Syd relocated his studio to Pasadena where he continues to be involved in a variety of design projects. During May of 2007, Syd completed a documentary of his accomplished work with director Joaquin Matalvan titled "Visual Futurist". As of recently, Syd was honored for his artwork featured on the 2011 EyesOn Design car show poster. Syd's work has inspired so many designers all over the world and will continue to inspire many generations to come.

The artwork, imagination, and uncanny ability to almost see into the future is extraodinary; Syd Mead was unique.
