Playboy's iconic and enduring mascot, a stylized silhouette of a rabbit wearing a tuxedo bow tie, was created by Playboy art director Art Paul for the second issue as an endnote, but was adopted as the official logo and has appeared ever since.

A running joke in the magazine involves hiding the logo somewhere in the cover art or photograph. Hefner said he chose the rabbit.
