This work is inspired by the new york times' article, 'The Woman Who Gave the Macintosh a Smile.'
This woman, Susan Kare is an artist and graphic designer who created many of the interface elements and typefaces for the Apple Macintosh in the 1980s.

Below is one paragraph in the article.
“If the Mac turned out to be such a revolutionary object — a pet instead of a home appliance, a spark for the imagination instead of a mere work tool — it is thanks to Susan’s fonts and icons, which gave it voice, personality, style, and even a sense of humor.”
