Signalnoise Tron poster trilogy

I’m excited to launch the third and final piece to complete the Signalnoise Tron poster trilogy. When the first bit of footage appeared online promoting the upcoming Tron Legacy film from Disney, I took it upon myself to design a fan-based poster utilizing the cool style and special effects. I love working with neon elements with loud colors, and the film is exactly that. Then when the official Tron Legacy trailer was released this past May, I revised my design to reflect the new color palette and designs.

After the revision, it was totally my intention to complete the series with a poster bringing back the original film style and design from 1982. The feedback on the first 2 posters has been overwhelming, and the majority of comments I received were from longtime and dedicated Tron fans. So the last poster includes a revised disc design (with a few enhancements) and color palette, as well as a few old school video game elements from back in the day, like straight up 3D vectors and pixels. I had to re-watch the original film a few times to get the tone right.

I will be shooting this new design over to the print shop really soon to get some posters made and will keep the blog updated on how I will be getting these into peoples’ hands. In the meantime you can grab some wallpapers of the first 2 Tron Legacy designs here and here. Enjoy!


  1. The posters are back! Great work James!

  2. I would actually kill people for these. I’m a HUGE TRON fan and NEED THEM.

    In the interim between now and getting the posters made, is there ANY way to get hi-res versions or as wallpapers?!

  3. Wow, looks like you saved the best for last.

  4. Hello have you got a tutorials section?
    The posters are really dope!!

    Matthew, I updated the post to include links to my previous Tron wallpapers. I’ll make the newest wallpapers when I can steal some time away.

    Aurelien, yes. Just click the ‘Tutorials’ category on the right-hand side of the site.

    Fantastic designs. My favourite is still number 2 with the orange and blue motif. I genuinely prefer that to the official film poster.
