According to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Susan Kare is “a pioneering and influential computer iconographer. Since 1983, Kare has designed thousands of icons for the world’s leading software companies. Utilizing a minimalist grid of pixels and constructed with mosaic-like precision, her icons communicate their function immediately and memorably, with wit and style.”

She began her career at Apple, Inc. as the screen graphics and digital font designer for the original Macintosh computer, initially advertised as the “computer for the rest of us.” Her studio’s work has continued to optimize for clarity and simplicity and to present concepts in clear, concise, and memorable ways.

Don’t forget to check her portfolio and find out the fact she draw icons for Facebook too.
