Every Real Apple Fan Needs This Stunning Letterpress “Here’s To The Crazy Ones” Poster

Looking for last minute gift ideas for the proud rebel or misfit in your life? What about this beautiful letterpressed poster by Brightwurks replicates the full text of Steve Jobs’s iconic 1997 “Crazy Ones” ad, with all proceeds going to Acumen Fund, a charity that helps relieve poverty.

The poster is printed on 140# paper and measures 10 inches wide by 26 inches tall. It’s stunningly beautiful, but letterpress isn’t cheap: expect to pay $95 for it unframed, or $195 framed. Full poster can be seen below.

    Where do we sign up for tee shirts? I’ll take a few of them. One for myself and the rest for gifts. I’d love it. Could I order than in the same blue color worn by all the staff at the local Apple Stores? Sign me up.

    That looks beautiful. Unfortunately, $95 for something that small…cannot do.

    Very nice indeed. Also a great way to highlight Steve Jobs’ passion about typography in the early years, after he dropped out of college.

    This design of “this thing” looks like the worst Wintel nightmare, and how early smart phones were like.
    It is to the furthest possible extent contrarian to Steve Jobs.

    maybe pre-iPhone but now this message is the least fitting for a majority of the cult of mac.

    Totally agree with Bernhard – this is so un-Steve Jobs looking.  Not at all elegant and simple and pretty.  Vegas-neon gaudy – is my opinion of what this looks like.

    moronic – this message still very much holds true. you don’t have to be able to root your device to make it the most innovative and standout innovation in the history of mobile. the true innovation and craziness of the iPod, iPhone, iPad, mac comes through the elegant user interface and experience but is embodied behind it in the amazing things you can do and achieve through the innovation taking place in the ecosystem – the app platform. the transparency of the technology is what allows you to step beyond it into a new and exciting world.

  • freerange

    so true – the abuse of typography gets in the way of the message!

  • jab11

    no, using every possible typeface mashed together is not beautiful.
