Peter Moore, designer of Jumpman logo and Air Jordan 1 sneaker dies at 78 - Marca English

Peter Moore is also credited as the designer of the Air Jordan Wings logo
Peter Moore, an iconic designer who helped launch the Michael Jordan sneaker brand, died on Friday at the age of 78, according to Business Insider and statements from Nike and Adidas.
Moore is credited for designing the Jumpman logo, the Wings emblem and the Air Jordan 1 sneaker, which is still one of the most relevant shoes in today's culture. There are still no details regarding the caus of death but Nike's Jordan brand vice president Howard "H" White released a statement extending the company's deepest sympathies to the Moore family.
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Peter Moore, an iconic designer, whose legacy will forever be connected to Jordan Brand, and the sneaker culture he helped to create," White said. "We extend our deepest sympathies to the Moore family during this time."
After helping Nike co-founder Phil Knight make the Jordan brand what it is today, Moore spent a few years rebranding Adidas. Moore redesigned the Adidas logo to the three-stripe, triangle emblem that currently stands.
"The Adidas family is saddened by the passing of our dear friend Peter Moore," the Adidas company said in a statement. "Our hearts are with Peter's family, friends, and everyone who knew him. Peter was a true legend and icon in our industry, and it is impossible to overstate the impact he has had on Adidas. He will be greatly missed and his legacy will live on forever."
Moore, who was known as a humble and hard-working man, will forever be remembered as a pioneer in the sneaker industry. He retired in 1998 after helping launch Adidas America but continued to create art well into the 2010s.
