Now growing up, all those little pixel graphics seems amazing, they were the height of technology, in the 80’s through to the early 90’s. Susan Kare is possibly responsible for much of what you clicked on, as icons on your computers. She designed for mac (that old version of solitaire and the little load graphics) I came across Kare through an issue of Grafik, 01_maciconsand thought it would be great for you all to see who designed those little icons you hold so dear….information graphics in a sense. Her thesis for the icons were that they were easily identifiable and without clutter like road signs. Her work is similar to a contruction of mosaic grids as the simple pixels create the minimalist identity for big software companies such as MAC computers.
