District 9 - Alien Vehicles

Aphids and other flying bugs were referenced for Dropship designs in an effort to mirror the insectile nature of the Aliens themselves. By contrast, The Mothership was an exercise in iconography, requiring an easily recognisable, imposing piece of geometry that could be clearly seen throughout Johannesburg.
