Susan Kare Is Part of Your Daily Life.
Sonoma, California, 1987

It’s not a stretch to say that Susan Kare’s playful icons and user interface design have impacted the daily lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world. Susan was part of the original Mac team and designed the original Mac icons and much of the user interface. Leaving Apple with Steve after his ouster, she became a cofounder and creative director at NeXT Computer, where she oversaw the creation of its icons and logo, working with the legendary Paul Rand. Later she designed or redesigned icons for many other computer operating systems, including Windows and IBM’s OS/2. Here she’s listening to Steve at an off-site meeting with her colleague Kim Jenkins (right), as he discusses the unfinished tasks facing the company.

Sometimes, we imagine things in the clouds and their shapes apparently look like something else. Some artistic people take this one step further and play with clouds to catch impressive photographs. Call it forced perspective or real imagination, but the result is amazingly excellent. See them for yourself and please let us know about your thoughts.
