Syd Mead


Concept artist Syd Mead, who had worked on the film Aliens, was hired to design areas of the USS Sulaco that didn't appear in the film but were used in the game these included pressure doors (these are seen in the level Distress as Winter starts his missions) generic corridors (like in concepts that were used through the Sulaco) and the EVA vestibule (aboard the Sulaco).

Original designs for the Sulaco were the exterior, mess hall, drop ship bay and the weapons bay, designs that weren't used in the film included a corridor, dropship, assault tractor and the loader, most would be included in the game design.

Syd Mead speaking to SFX in an interview early this year explained just what was involved in continuing a project which he hadn't worked on for so many years and how he worked with the developer Gearbox to achieve an authentic Aliens feel.


‘Syd Mead: Progressions’ Exhibit at Fort Collins Museum Of Art, Fort Collins, Colorado on May 16th-21st July 2013.

Syd Mead: Progressions will feature 50 watercolor renderings by visual futurist, automobile designer and film designer Syd Mead.
