Meet The Man Who Saved Apple

Patrick Hanlon profiles Craig Tanimoto for Forbes:

Lee Clow, Chiat/Day’s worldwide creative director and one of the creators of ‘1984’ came into the room. He walked along the walls looking at ideas, pausing at some and totally dismissing others. He was looking very quickly to get an overview of the work. When he came up to Tanimoto’s campaign he stopped and looked.

He turned to Tanimoto and said. “Shouldn’t it be ‘Think Differently’?”

“No,” answered Tanimoto.

Clow thought about it for a minute and agreed. “You’re right.” He turned to the group and announced, “Everyone’s working on this. I want to blow this execution out.”
