Susan Kare is a former Apple employee whose incredible work can still be seen in the Macintosh operating system. A high school friend of Andy Hertzfeld, Susan joined Apple in the early 1980’s. Before leaving Apple for NeXT in 1985, Susan created the Chicago typeface, the Geneva typeface, the monospace Monaco typeface, Clarus the Dogcow and the symbol on the Command key, among others.
Most notably, Susan created the “Happy Mac” icon that smiled at users from booting Macs until it was replaced with the Apple logo with Mac OS X 10.2.
Now, Susan has made 8.5″ x 11″ Valentine prints featuring the cheerful classic Mac available from her website. Each print is numbered and signed. Speaking as an Apple geek, I’d love to have one of these. Keep them in mind for the Mac fan on your shopping list.
