Susan Kare designed an icon for our birthday!

The legendary Susan Kare is responsible for much of the look and feel of the original Macintosh interface, and she’s a real hero of mine, so I’m delighted that she created this icon for our twentieth anniversary celebrations. She’s terrific to work with, and came up with some great ideas during the process. Our sister site Creative Bloq, are interviewing her about it all; follow us on Twitter and Facebook and we’ll tell you when it’s up – so you’ll see the different ideas she came up with!

There’s loads of great retro stuff in the new issue of MacFormat, and we’re giving away our first issue – from all the way back in 1993 – completely free inside our app edition! It’s a real nostalgia-fest; get it for iPhone and iPad at
