Macintosh Icon Designer Reflects On Her Work at Apple
When asked about her design influences and her time at Apple, she had this to say:
I was so lucky to get to work in the Macintosh group with great colleagues and talented programmers. That experience introduced me to interface design development and how I might be able to contribute as a graphic designer to the overall user experience. It also gave me practice in aiming to communicate big concepts in small spaces.At Apple, Kare was responsible for most of the typefaces and the icons of the original Macintosh, along with much of the marketing material. She is best known for the Chicago sans-serif typeface and the "Happy Mac" icon that welcomed early Mac users on startup.
Kare now works as an independent artist and created a set of "stickers" for social networking app Path.
