Karel Haloun

Graphic designer, publicist, pedagogue and curator.

He mainly does graphic design for music records and posters, but also works on music books. To date, he designed over 500 CD and LP covers, and about as many posters, for instance for the first ever Rolling Stones gig in Prague in 1990 (approved by the band’s management but rejected by the tour sponsor, the Anheuser-Busch brewery). He’s the recipient of many awards, not least the Czech Grand Design award, and since 2006 a member of the Czech Rock Hall of Fame.
