Kali  Rolling Stones  John Pasche was still a student at the Royal College of Art when he was asked to design an image for a Rolling Stones tour in 1971. As Pasche explains in this film Mick Jagger invited the young designer to his Chelsea home to brief him. The logo was initially inspired less by Mick Jagger's famous pouting lips than by the Indian goddess Kali who is often portrayed with a protruding pointed tongue. The image was an immediate success. Pasche was paid 50 and commissioned to design a logo which has featured on every Stones album since. http://www.vam.ac.uk/channel/things/graphics/lips_logo/
