Chances are you will recognize the work of Susan Kare before you recognize her name. As the highly respected designer of some of today’s most well-known computer icons, including the Macintosh trash can, wrist watch, and happy face, Kare’s designs have been a huge influence on graphic design today.

Here is an example of a simple and striking pictogram of the late Steve Jobs.

Welcome to the Design 4 Blog

This blog is for inspiration and education related to the Parsons Design 4 Information Design and Visualization course taught by Andrew Robinson. The objectives of this class are to help students in the Strategic Design Studies program to learn how to create effective information design as a tool for communication. Beauty in form and function, which communicates ideas effectively, is our goal.
