Cancel / Save / OK


Last Update:

The Cancel / Save / OK series is inspired by the typography and design of the classic Mac OS user interface. Chicago is the typeface used throughout the classic Mac OS system in buttons, menus, and dialogs.

Below is a draft of a vector drawing I made to print the buttons in high resolution.

Chicago and most other now iconic imagery were designed by Susan Kare in the 1980s. The Font was used 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.”
