The Rolling Stones’ famous hot lips logo is one of the world's most instantly recognisable symbols of rock and roll. It was created in 1970 by then art student John Pasche, who went on to become Art Director at United Artists (Music Division), Creative Director of Chrysalis Records Ltd and ultimately, Creative Director at the South Bank Centre. Pasche was awarded a sought-after place at the Royal College of Art after graduating from Brighton, where he found himself working alongside George Hardy who was working on the album cover for Pink Floyd’s iconic Dark Side of the Moon. Pasche was then himself recommended by the College to attend a meeting with Mick Jagger to discuss a commission for a Stones’ 1970 tour poster.
