The “Icons by Susan Kare” exhibition opened its doors at the Museum of Printing and Graphic Communication in Lyon, not far from us. Follow the guide with Kernel Panic!
Susan Kare created the icons and fonts for the Macintosh, but also Solitaire cards and Windows 95 icons, or more recently, Pinterest iconography. At 68, she is far from having retired, since she joined Niantic, the publisher of Pokémon Go, to work on virtual reality.
As you read MacGeneration dutifully, you know the work of Susan Kare. But this work is less known to the general public. So when we learned that the Museum of Printing and Graphic Communication in Lyon, a stone’s throw from our editorial office, was organizing the first retrospective devoted to the work of Susan Kare, you can imagine that we jumped at the chance!
