Susan Kare, Mother of Happy Mac

I’ve been captivated by the sketchbook of Susan Kare, the artist who created Happy Mac (and the other iconic interface elements for Mac). It’s fascinating to see these original icons that have defined so much of our UI today came from a $2.50 sketchbook.

Perhaps it’s just nostalgia, but Happy Mac makes me smile – something the newer, slicker, monochromatic Apple logo cannot do.
