The Crazy Ones

A while back, I came across a typographical poster of one of my favorite quotes on this website. The quote of course is from Apple's 1997 television spot entitled, "Here's to the Crazy Ones." For those that prefer the text, the quote goes as follows:

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world—are the ones who do.

The poster, which was designed by Jared McDaniel, has been hanging near my desk for over a year (unfortunately I missed the opportunity to buy it as a letterpress print, so I have a small inkjet print instead). Wanting to build off of his inspirational work, I rebuilt the vectors in Illustrator and created this 3D rendering of the design.
