Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster Designed by Oliver Gareis

This Steve Jobs Tribute Typographic Poster has to be one of the best graphic design tributes I've seen in a while. Oliver Gareis has done an outstanding job of mixing and matching a whole bunch of typographic styles, into something really rather elegant and stylish.

In basic type theory (using more than a few font styles in one layout etc) it should be a mess, but it just seems to work so well.

It might not be to everyones taste, but I love it.

You must go over to Oliver's Behance profile: Steve Jobs Famous Quote Typography to view the original project, and to also watch a time lapse video of the posters development.

Oliver explains how this came to be, and how long it took:

About one year ago I started this project, when the agency where I work full time decided that they want to pimp their office.

We brainstormed on what to do, and finally decided to write a quote on the wall of someone who is an inspiration to all of us, namely Steve Jobs.

So I sat down, took some time of reconsidering and picked a truly inspiring quote of him. First, I started drawing everything on paper.

Secondly, I scanned everything and assembled the four A4 sized papers into one piece with Illustrator.

It was a lot of hard work to create this illustration but it was definitely worth it. After I finished the illustration I drew the piece on our office wall.

It took me about 20 days spread over 4 month to finish this drawing. I would really appreciate it if you can take a look on the time lapse video to see my work."

Remember. An Apple a day...

Remember. An Apple a day - Typographic Poster

A new typographic based poster design, free for you to download. This quote came about whilst on my usual daily rampage on Twitter. Just popped into being after hearing the usual debate about the virtues of Mac and/or PC. being a Mac fan, I ofcourse sided with Mac. Hence this poster. "Remember. An Apple a day keeps Vista at bay."

Usual rules apply. Sarcasm, opinion and silly humour all used as essential ingredients for this poster. Don't sue me because you don't like it.

Don't Be Stupid Typographic Poster

Here we have a new typographic based poster design, free for download, based on one of my favourite quotes. Have been fond of this quote for years, and have used it numerous time in my personal blogs. Every now and again I see someone tweeting it, so I thought time to make it into a nice poster. To immortalize these well meaning words in printed and digital form : "The probability of somebody watching you is proportional to the stupidity of your actions."
