Susan Kare (born 1951) is an American computer graphics designer who created many of the original icons for the Macintosh user interface, including some of its most famous images, such as the trash can. She was also involved with NeXTStep and WatchMe!.
She began working at Apple in 1982 when it had 10 employees. She did conceptual design until she left in 1990 to found her own consulting company.
The Andy Warhol -designed “Paint” icon that appears on all Macintosh computers usually credited exclusively to Norman Ives or Susan Kare has never been corroborated by either person. It has since been confirmed that Andy Warhol designed this classic Apple Icon during his brief tenure at New York’s.
