The State Motto Project is an interesting and surprising collection of illustrations, type and good design. The project by the collective 50 and 50 invited 50 designers to represent their state's motto as an illustration. The illustrations that have been posted thus far are a tribute to design and all things retro. New illustrations are posted often and show the range and depth of design from across our great country. Enjoy this site showcasing our history, strengths, design and the crazy mottos of the states.
