Läsvärt porträtt av Susan Kare

Zachary Crockett:

Susan Kare “was the type of kid who always loved art.” As a child, she lost herself in drawings, paintings, and crafts; as a young woman, she dove into art history and dreamed of being a world-renowned fine artist.

But when a chance encounter in 1982 reconnected her with an old friend and Apple employee, Kare found herself working in a different medium, with a much smaller canvas — about 1,024 pixels. Equipped with few computer skills and lacking any prior experience with digital design, Kare proceeded to revolutionize pixel art.

Grymt läsvärt. Kare var även med och designade ikoner till IBM:s OS/2, Microsoft Windows och en rad andra plattformar och applikationer.
