The original emoji, Cairo was a typeface designed by Susan Kare in 1984 for the first Macintosh operating system. Taking its name from the hieroglyphics of ancient Egypt, each symbol was drawn by hand using the bitmap grid. A few notable symbols lived on into later operating systems including the cursor and watch.

Kare designed this woven blanket for the Jacquard loom, an early example of computer-controlled machinery, operated with punched cards and invented by Joseph Jacquard in 1801.

DESIGNED BY SUSAN KARE FOR AREAWARE

After graduating from New York University with a Ph.D. in fine arts, Susan Kare took a curatorial job at an art museum, and quickly realized she was on the wrong side of the creative equation. In 80s, she began work at Apple Computer designing fonts, icons, and graphic elements for the nascent Macintosh operating system and applications. Kare subsequently followed Steve Jobs to Next Computer as the tenth employee and Creative Director. She was the founding partner of Susan Kare Design, a graphic design practice in San Francisco in 1989, and since then has designed thousands of icons for hundreds of clients along with many corporate identity and other design projects, from Microsoft’s Solitaire cards to Facebook’s virtual gifts. Since 2011, she has been creating limited edition fine art icon prints at kareprints.com.
