Susan Kare is a widely acclaimed type and icon designer. She designed the icons and bitmap typefaces and interface icons for use on the original Macintosh computers. In doing so, she invented a language of metaphor and iconography still in use today. She later designed icons and graphics for Windows 3.0 and OS/2. Some of her typefaces, which have become ubiquitous on the Macintosh, include Geneva, Chicago, Monaco, and New York. Her contribution to the history of user interface design and personal computing in general cannot be overstated.
