MoMA Recognizes Susan Kare

John Brownlee, writing for Fast Company:

Susan Kare — the pioneering graphic designer whose pixel art icons for the original Macintosh helped define the language of graphical user interfaces (GUIs) — is being recognized by the New York Museum of Modern Art. Her archive of graph paper drawings sketching out her ideas for the original Macintosh interface have been acquired by the MoMA as part of the new exhibition, This is for Everyone: Design Experiments For The Common Good.

Well-deserved. Kare’s work for the original Macintosh has truly stood the test of time.
