The Cancel / Save notepad is inspired by the typography and design of the classic Mac OS user interface. The typeface used throughout the classic Mac OS system in buttons, menus and dialogs is called Chicago.
Chicago and most of the other, now iconic imagery was designed by Susan Kare in the 1980’s. The Font was used up until Mac OS 7.6 (1984 – 1997).
In an article regarding Macintosh typefaces published 1991 in Electronic Publishing, type designers Charles A. Bigelow and Kris Holmes note:
“Macintosh Chicago is a distinctive design. There are few faces quite like it in traditional typography, even among so-called “display” faces, used for headlines and titling. Because Chicago is deeply integrated into the Macintosh System, used in menus, titles, etc., it is a fundamental part of the look of the Macintosh.”
