John Van Hamersveld designed the iconic 'The Endless Summer' poster in 1964 for his friend Bruce Brown, who was directing low-budget surf documentaries. At the time, he was a student at Art Center College of Design and the art director for Surfer magazine. He arranged the photo shoot with Brown and the film’s two stars—Mike Hynson and Robert August—at Salt Creek Beach in Dana Point, crafted the image at his kitchen table, screen-printed the poster in a garage, and hand lettered the title to complete the work. The poster, for which Brown paid him $150, would soon become a national phenomenon. Van Hamersveld went on to work at Capitol Records, designing the album cover for the Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour, the Stones’ Exile on Main St. as well as the now-classic Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane Pinnacle Rock Concert posters. This giclée art print reproduction has been produced on heavy weight 100% cotton rag art paper using archival quality inks resulting in a superior print suitable for museum or gallery display.

  • 300gsm 100% cotton rag textured art paper

Over the course of his 50-year career, multidisciplinary pop artist John Van Hamersveld has created influential and instantly recognizable graphic design. Early in his career, he created the legendary Endless Summer poster to advertise the 1966 film of the same name. Thus began a career in graphic design that found him immersed in the world of rock and roll as Art Director for Capitol Recordsvcf. During the 1960s and 1970s he designed such iconic album covers as the Beatles Magical Mystery Tour, The Grateful Dead Skeletons in the Closet, the Rolling Stones Exile on Main Street, and concert posters for artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Bob Dylan and many others.
