A devout modernist, Rudolph de Harak produces work for public and private institutions that is uncompromisingly human. His exhibition design explores the rational world, and his graphic design uncovers the subconscious, employing abstract forms to subtly unlock alternative levels of perceptions. In recognition of his illustrious multi-disciplinary career—designing hundreds of book jackets, record covers, and posters—he was awarded a 1992 AIGA Medal.
