Susan Kare created some of the most familiar user interface designs in early computing. The icons she designed for the original Macintosh operating system helped millions navigate easily through the earlyand unfamiliar digital environment, and include the trash can, lasso, and Finder Icon.
"I worked on the original pixel art for the on-screen Solitaire cards in 1990 using an IBM PC, Microsoft Paint, and the typical 16 VGA color palette of the time. A lot of those weren't particularly attractive colors, but fortunately the card faces only required black, red, and yellow. I was inspired by classic card decks, and had the most fun trying to translate the complicated patterns of the Jacks, Queens, and Kings to a 72 dots-per-inch grid."
