Keep calm and Kare on

As a geek and a graphic designer I have to be a fan of Susan Kare, It’s written in the secret graphic designer’s code of conduct handbook. She is the woman who designed the original icons for the Macintosh operating system (and some for Microsoft too, but we won’t mention those). Anyway, designing an icon that works at such a tiny size in a very low resolution that also looks great when enlarged is no easy thing.

I was delighted a few months back when she made some of her iconic icons available as limited edition signed prints from and have three of them on the studio wall. Today I got very excited when I discovered the watch in the picture above. It’s not from Susan Kare but is clearly an homage to THIS famous icon we should all be familiar with.
