Foundation on Apple TV + has proved a hit with audiences and sci-fi fans looking to fill a Game Of Thrones sized hole in their schedules. Based on the famous books by acclaimed science fiction author Isaac Asimov, Foundation plots humanity's rise and fall amongst the stars. It's an epic, sweeping story that some said could never be filmed. 

Getting the foundations right with inspired concept art has ensured Asimov's vision comes alive on Apple's streaming platform. Fittingly, the clean design of Apple influenced some of the concept art behind the TV series.
