Susan Kare: ‘The Betsy Ross of the Personal Computer’
Susan Kare, the noted interface designer, once referred to by the New York Times as “the Betsy Ross of the personal computer,” is now offering prints of some of her most engaging icons – the visual metaphors for computer commands – at Kare Prints.
Some of the prints offered feature her original icons for Apple’s Macintosh. The limited editions come in a range of colors and sizes and are numbered and signed.
About Susan Kare
Kare is a pioneering and influential computer iconographer based in San Francisco. She has designed thousands of icons for the world’s leading companies that have become familiar to anyone who uses a computer. Her icons are more like road signs than illustrations – clear, concise, and instantly recognizable – where the meaning is unambiguous.
New York’s Museum of Modern Art describes her work: “Constructed with mosaic-like precision, her icons communicate their function immediately and memorably, and with style.”
