Susan Kare

Standard

susan kare’s designs have become an integral part of the computer culture. she is a 2001 recipient of the chrysler design award.
kare, who’s office is based in san francisco, designed most of the distinctive icons, typefaces and other graphic elements that gave the original macintosh computer its characteristic appearance.

some of her most famous icons the trash can (for discarding files), the watch (which means the computer is busy and can’t be used), and the portrait of a computer with a sly mona lisa smile (which means the machine is working).

I think that Susan Kare’s job is not only creative but important as her work is used most likely everyday by thousands of different people. I think she is a credit to the design industry and have enjoed looking at her work.
