Check out this wonderful presentation from Susan Kare, a member of the original Mac team who designed the icons and typography for those early Macs. This movie has been around for years, but I just saw it in a piece at Tested about the Command Key icon. That story is part of the presentation and involves Steve Jobs. In fact, it includes all kinds of anecdotes and lore, and if you’re interested in Apple or Apple products, you will enjoy watching this presentation. And the reality is if you use a modern computing device, you owe Susan Kare a debt of gratitude. She’s done a lot of work for many other companies, too, and she touches on that in this preso. It’s great!

    Thanks.
    Susan Kare is a genius. What she did with the 32×32 grid, and the Chicago font was so outstanding. I would not have thought anybody could make anything so aesthetic and understandable with so little. (Compare it to the awful interface mockup they had before her.)
