(31.May.12) Weyland Corp: Building Better Worlds

With the imminent release of Prometheus, Ridley Scott is returning to the ever-popular science fiction franchise he kicked off more than thirty years ago with the classic Alien. To say that we’re all excited to see what he’s going to show us is putting it mildly – it’s sure to be an impressive experience.

Of course, marketing has changed a lot in thirty years, and Prometheus has used some very modern and clever approaches to building anticipation for the film. One of the best has been a slick faux corporate website for the imaginary Weyland Corporation that one can wander through for hours, finding all sorts of hints about the upcoming film, as well as nods to past entries in the franchise.

Dave Brasgalla has created several icons and desktop wallpapers using the graphic sensibility of that site so that you can extend the look and feel onto your own devices. Building better worlds – one desktop at a time! Head over to the freeware page and download “Weyland Corp” today, and we’ll see you in the cinema!
