Graphic designer Susan Kare has been called the “the Betsy Ross of the personal computer,”  the “Queen of Look and Feel,” the “Matisse of computer icons,” and the “mother of the Mac trash can.”  Kare is best known for designing the distinctive icons, typefaces, and other graphic elements that gave the Apple Macintosh its characteristic—and widely emulated—look and feel. Since then, Kare has spent the last three decades designing user interface elements for many of the leading software and Internet firms.
