[Fifty & Fifty]…A 50 States Design Project

One of my favorite parts about going on road trips is the “Welcome To..” signs that you past when entering a new state. It always gives me a sort of nostalgic feeling for the old US of A and it reminds me how different each state is. So, with this in mind, I was thrilled to come across the 50 & 50 project, which gives artists & illustrators the chance to illustrate their state’s motto. The only restraint is that the illustration must be in red, white, & blue…

Arizona (God Enriches)

Minnesota (Star of the North)

Maryland (Manly Deeds, Womanly Words)

Georgia (Wisdom, Justice & Moderation)

Florida (In God We Trust)

Oregon (She Flies With Her Own Wings)

This is cool…although Maryland’s motto is sort of odd to me…

Anyway, I look forward to seeing the one for California…a new illustration is released every day, so check it out!
