Steve Silberman of NeuroTribes has posted a fascinating article about graphic designer Susan Kare, the icon and font designer for the original 1984 Apple Macintosh graphical user interface. The article includes Kare’s original hand drawn icon concept sketches for the smiling Mac, hand pointer, and other still recognizable icons.

Kare has published a book, Susan Kare: Icons, that features icons from her Apple days to the present.
