1988 – Ahn Sang-soo
Setting typography free
For years, the only way to print the Korean alphabet, Hangeul, was through the laborious process of phototypesetting. Using his Macintosh, typographer Ahn Sang-soo designed a simple, off-square digital font that anyone could use. People were then able to write and create beautiful documents using Korean characters. This sparked a creative movement for a new group of artists and storytellers.

An example of the Ahn font module. Before the Mac, Ahn’s phototypesetting process consisted of laboriously cutting and positioning each letter. With the Mac, Ahn no longer had to go through rounds and rounds of trial and error. What he saw on the screen was essentially what came out of his printer. This gave him, and anyone who designed with the font, the freedom to use it more widely in books, posters, and magazines. Hangeul mandala in the Ahn font. The traditional Korean alphabet comprises 11,172 character combinations. With Fontographer software, Ahn Sang-soo created his “off-square” font Hangeul, which wasn’t tied to the old block shapes and required designing only 67 character combinations. This simplified letter design made Hangeul more accessible to people who wanted to create with it.

Released September 19, 1988
Macintosh IIx
The Macintosh IIx wasn’t just a follow-up to the previous model. It introduced the 1.44MB floppy disk to the Mac line, nearly doubling the capacity compared to earlier computers. This floppy disk would become the standard in personal computers over the next decade.

What people did with it
In 1988, the Macintosh IIx was many things to Mac users. Here’s how people say they used it the most.
