Mario R. García (born February 15, 1947 in Placetas, Las Villas, Cuba) is an American newspaper and magazine designer and media consultant.
He has collaborated with more than 573 publications over the past 40 years. García has redesigned large publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Miami Herald, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Handelsblatt, Die Zeit, The Hindu, Malayala Manorama, Sakshi, and Paris Match; medium-size newspapers, such as The Charlotte Observer, România Liberă, and the 40 business weeklies of American City Business Journals; and smaller newspapers, such as the Lawrence Journal-World. He was appointed the head of Syracuse University's School of Graphic Arts in 1977. He assumed this position from Edmund Arnold, the man widely regarded as the "father" of modern American newspaper design. García was the first recipient of the Society for News Design's Lifetime Achievement Award, and in 2006 People en Español chose him as one of the 100 most influential Hispanics. In October 2011 he was awarded the Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism by the Missouri School of Journalism.
In September 2012, García published his thirteenth book, and first e-book, iPad Design Lab: Storytelling in the Age of the Tablet.
