In January 2012 there appeared in my RSS reader a post about a creative design team that had been so inspired by Steve Jobs that they had put together a poster to celebrate the 1997 Apple advertising campaign, Think Different.
As I shared, it took me less than a few seconds to hit that “Buy” button and then I waited very patiently to receive my limited edition copy.
I’m glad I did as I believe that Apple, directly, requested that the team take down the campaign. If my memory serves me right, the team complied with Apple’s request and also donated the proceeds to a charity.
My poster now sits in my bathroom, a daily reminder and source of inspiration as I get ready for the day.
And, at night, it’s also the same spot where my 5-year old, Arden, gets her teeth brushed. I had no idea that she was silently memorizing the poster and a few weeks ago she surprised me by reciting it by heart.
I could have been more proud. Yesterday, I grabbed her and captured her on video – she even did a small intro.
