I had never really given state mottos much thought until I first saw the “50 and 50” project. Nowadays, each time I cross the state line I look to see the motto as we crossover.
Badass designer Dan Cassarro (aka young jerks) apparently got the idea for this project as he crossed from state to state on a road trip throughout the country with his gal. The idea evolved into a sort of designer/state directory. Cassaro asked one (carefully chosen, extremely talented) designer in each state to illustrate their state’s motto using two predetermined colors.
These already awesesome designers brought their A game and the results are top notch The project isn’t complete yet… by my count they still have 14 states to go, personally with some awesome designers still up to bat (personally psyched to see DDC’s contribution).
