It was such a treat for me to see works from the legendary designer Jon Van Hamersveld in person at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. Just to name a few things that have made my world a better place, Van Hamersveld has designed the following album covers: “Exile On Main St.” by the Rolling Stones, “Magical Mystery Tour” by The Beatles, “Eat to the Beat” by Blondie, “Hotter than Hell” by Kiss and “Skeletons in the Closet” by the Grateful Dead. In addition, he’s designed the iconic logo for Fatburger and the movie “Endless Summer” and the list of amazing accomplishments goes on and on and on.
Designed by Jon Van Hamersveld.
