Steve Jobs had just returned to the struggling company, Apple Computer in 1997. Jobs and Lee Clow had collaborated back in 1984 to launch the MacIntosh. Now was the time to recover the sense of Apple’s place in the world of creative users. The TBWA Chiat/Day team said that Apple should be aligned with the creativity of personalities and people making an impact on the twentieth century. The "Think Different" phrase provided an opportunity to celebrate both the creativity of these people but also the distinctiveness of Apple in the computing world, responding to IBM’s historic campaign motto, "Think". The campaign was swiftly approved by Apple, then begun with the television commercial, which first ran on Sept. 28 1997, followed by the print ads, billboards and posters. (Source -Inspiration Room)

This image of Amelia Earhart was part of Apple’s "Educators Set", which was printed in 2000 and distributed through its Education Channels. Included with the set was a biography of each person depicted. Here is an excerpt: "Amelia Earhart: ‘Aviator’. In 1922, she set the women’s altitude record of 14,000 feet. In 1932, she became the first woman to cross the Atlantic – solo and in record time. She pushed the limits of aviation and at the same time broke down gender stereotypes. On July 2, 1937, some 20,000 miles into an around-the-world flight, she slipped into the Pacific without a trace. Her last note to her husband summed up her legacy: "Women must do things as men have tried. When they fail, their failure must be a challenge to others."
