Here's a big project featuring a bunch of very talented individuals, that has been getting alot of hype in the design/illustration circuit. The website says:50 AND 50 IS A COLLECTIVE, CURATED PROJECT WHERE FIFTY DESIGNERS ARE INVITED TO REPRESENT THEIR STATE BY ILLUSTRATING ITS MOTTO. Fifty and Fifty was created by Dan Cassaro, who is also a talented designer.
Below are some of my favorites from the bunch.
Jess Hische did the one for PA (which is currently my computer background).
Kansas was done by Luke Bott.
And Connecticut by one of my favorite illustrators Meg Hunt.
I like how all the designers incorporated the same simple color palette, which is a nice alternative to using the traditional red, white, and blue. It was nice to see how the different artists utilized hand done type and imagery to represent the mottos. Nice work!
