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.
