State Mottos Reinvented by 50 designers for your Graphic & Typographic Inspiration in “Fifty and Fifty”

This project is so fun for design junkies: the 50 and 50 project in which 50 designers from each state were assigned to illustrate their state’s motto. Curated by Dan Cassaro, a New York-based freelance designer/animator/print-maker at his company called Young Jerks, he describes 50 and 50 as “a kind of designer’s atlas.” Although diverse in style the project as a whole is a cohesive collection since the designers used the same color palette.
