Peter Good, Designer of The Hartford Whalers’ Logo, Has Passed Away

Connecticut-based graphic designer and illustrator Peter Good has passed away at the age of eighty. Good, who designed the iconic Hartford Whaler logo, had a career spanning over fifty years, during which he and his wife Janet created numerous unique and iconic logos for corporations, nonprofits, and institutions.

Good had been in hospice care for two weeks after the removal of a brain tumor before his passing. His family announced his death on Facebook on May 2nd, 2022, which Connecticut Public later confirmed. Good’s son, Justin, shared on Facebook that his father passed away with grace and humor, leaving behind a legacy of anecdotes that could fill a book.

Connecticut is home to a number of graphic design works by Good, which can be seen in various locations throughout the state. Notable examples include the Mark Twain House and Museum, and The Kate in Old Saybrook. These locations serve as a testament to Good’s skill and influence in the field of graphic design.
