50 and 50 – The State Mottos

I live in the state of Virginia, and I’ve always thought that our state motto was “Virginia is for Lovers”— I guess that’s the motto for bumper stickers, and to attract tourism to the state…come to find out the real motto is “Sic Semper Tyrannis”, Latin for ” Thus Always To Tyrants”…who knew? I guess we never think about our state mottos—come to think of it, do you know yours?

This morning I came upon this awesome project (via twitter), titled 50 and 50 – The State Mottos, where 50 individual designers were invited to represent their home state by illustrating its state motto. The project is headed by Young Jerks – the Studio of Dan Cassaro, who designed the illustration for his home state, New York. Below are just a few of the illustrations, take a look at the full gallery of work to find your state and check out the rest of the awesome designs.
