Heinz Edelmann (20 June 1934 – 21 July 2009) was a German illustrator and designer. He was born in Ústí nad Labem, Czechoslovakia, into the Czech-German family of Wilhelm Edelmann and Josefa (née Kladivová) Edelmann. He was well known as an illustrator in Europe, but is probably most famous for his art direction and character designs for the Beatles' 1968 animated film Yellow Submarine.

Edelmann studied printmaking at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf (Düsseldorf Arts Academy) from 1953 to 1958. He began his career as a freelance illustrator and designer for theatre posters and advertising in Germany. Between 1961 and 1969 he was a regular illustrator and cover designer for the internationally renowned youth magazine twen. During 1967–68, he worked on Yellow Submarine. From 1968 to 1970 he was a partner in a small animation company in London, but his desire at the time to work on more feature films was not realised. In 1970 Edelmann moved to Amsterdam and designed book jackets and posters for plays and films. His last use of the style of Yellow Submarine was in illustrating a book, Andromedar SR1 (1970), about a voyage to Mars. He also designed the cover for a German edition of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, and illustrated the Kenneth Grahame children's book The Wind in the Willows.

He designed the 1992 Seville World's Fair mascot, Curro.
