Susan Kare is a graphic designer best known for her design work for the start up of the Apple Macintosh in the 1980s. Her designs became iconic and pioneered new symbols we know to this day, such as the command symbol. The Baseline magazine cover and spreads created are based on the article titled "The Woman Behind Apple's First Icons". The colors, blue, gray, and white were used with bitmap graphics to tie to the look of computers back then, while retaining a clean and appealing spread design.
