It’s not uncommon to see some of Steve Jobs’ more memorable quotes become memorialized in one fashion or another since his passing. One of the most famous, however, is getting a bit of special treatment, with a good cause gathering the benefits.
The team over at Brightwurks (parent company of TNW-profiled Help Scout) has produced a beautifully-designed letterpress poster of Jobs’ “Here’s to the crazy ones”. Even better? 100% of the sales profits go to benefit the Acumen Fund, a charity helping to tackle poverty.
“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been mostly written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs. He embodied the characteristics in this quote arguably better than anyone in history. Today it lives on as a mantra for artists, inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators around the world.”
The poster is printed on 140# paper and measures 10 inches wide by 26 inches tall. Unframed, it costs $95, or you can have it framed professionally and sent to you for $195. Unfortunately it’s only available to be shipped to the United States, but perhaps that will change some time in the future as the goal right now seems to be getting them into buyers’ hands before Christmas.
So pony up, get a beautifully-done poster and help out a good cause while you’re at it. Oh, and if you need a reminder, here’s the quote, spoken by the man himself.
