Here’s to The Crazy Ones

If you frequent the design world, chances are you have come across this quote (first used in an Apple commercial in 1997).  More than being inspirational, this quote is liberating and affirming to “creative” people.   Artists feel like they are “one of a kind” and completely individual (and, let’s be honest, that is a fun idea);  but in reality, there is a whole group of people who call themselves “artist” and “designer” and “creative writers” and “musicians” and “engineers” and “crafters” and “creative thinkers” and people who are ok with thinking outside the box…   who all band together under this banner of The Crazy Ones.  Proudly different.  Searching for new ways to look at life and to show others how beautiful this life can be.

Are you a Crazy One and proud?  What is your creative passion?

“The now iconic quote debuted in a 1997 television commercial for Apple Computer. The text was said to have been partially written by then Apple CEO Steve Jobs (along with Rob Siltanen and Ken Segall). 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.”
