Jerry Dior, Designer of Major League Baseball’s Logo, Dies at 82

Margalit Fox, writing for the NYT:

Jerry Dior, a graphic designer who created one of the most instantly recognizable logos in the history of American marketing — the silhouetted batter that has long symbolized Major League Baseball — but who received official credit for it only 40 years after the fact, died on May 10 at his home in Edison, N.J. He was 82.

Truly one of the best and most enduring logos in the world.
