Susan Kare, Iconographer (EG8) from EG Conference on Vimeo.

Designer Susan Kare does a presentation at a conference. She’s a brilliant designer and I’ve been looking at her work since 1984 (the first Mac).

May: 2014, Susan Kare walks us through some key points regarding the design of icons and symbols. Kare is an artist and designer and pioneer of pixel art; she created many of the graphical interface elements for the original Apple Macintosh in the 1980s as a key member of the Mac software design team, and continued to work as Creative Director at NeXT for Steve Jobs.

The Sketchbook of Susan Kare, the Artist Who Gave Computing a Human Face

I’ve known about Susan Kare since the mid-1980’s because both her icon and font designs were the “face” of the original Macintosh and stayed with us for close to ten years.

She makes and sells limited edition prints: Susan Kare: limited edition prints and has a professional web site for her design work: Susan Kare: user interface graphics.
