Update: Apple asked us to remove the posters.

As part of Apple’s campaign to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Mac, it released ‘Apple 30′ themed posters cleverly composed with the names of every Apple employee, corporate and retail alike. While the physical posters are located on Apple’s campus, the company decided to release digital versions on their internal system so current employees could locate their names amid the vast sea of alphabet.

While current employees can access the digital versions on Apple’s internal system and locate their name based on their employee ID number, former employees have not been granted that opportunity (and a trek to Apple campus in Cupertino doesn’t come cheap). That’s until now. A friendly, former employee gained access to the digital files and shared what he found with us below…

The series of names begins with Steven Jobs and Steve Wozniak, the company’s two founders of course, and continues with every Apple employee, past and present, including yours truly (seen above) and anyone else you could imagine.

While Apple’s internal system allows employees to locate their name by employee ID number, these images of course do not. That’s nothing a little OCR magic can’t stop though.

A promise to everyone. Kept by every one of us.
On January 24, 1984, we made a promise to take the power of technology from the few and put it in the hands of the many. This series of ten posters recognizes all those who have helped turn that promise into reality. In other words, every single person who has ever worked at Apple.

Check out each poster below and begin the hunt for your name if you’re a former employee! Enjoy.

See update above. Bye posters. [Removed]

  14. I don’t understand why they would want the posters removed. I’m a former Apple employee, and I don’t appreciate that I have to search for my name on crappy copies, or pictures that were taken from someone’s phone. What’s the big deal? Let us have the damn posters!
