LEMELSON CENTER — Susan Kare, Iconic Designer

Lemelson Center Logo

by Eric S. Hintz

Susan Kare designed the distinctive icons, typefaces, and other graphic elements that gave the Apple Macintosh its characteristic—and widely emulated—look and feel.

Graphic designer Susan Kare is the “woman who gave the Macintosh a smile.” She is best known for designing the distinctive icons, typefaces, and other graphic elements that gave the Apple Macintosh its characteristic—and widely emulated—look and feel. Since then, Kare has spent the last three decades designing user interface elements for many leading software and Internet firms.
