So my morning started early and abruptly. My little Lyla woke up before 5am sick as a dog. Ah, someday these will be fun memories, right? Anyway, because of this derailment in all things planned for Thursday, this post will be of two attributes – short and sweet.
Awhile back, somehow I stumbled upon the state mottos collection called 50 and 50, and I was enamored. It is a curated project of 50 designers’ individual modernized takes on each of the 50 state mottos. A slight confession: I didn’t know the state motto for Arizona, which is Ditat Deus, Latin for “God Enriches“. I like it. Then layer in beautiful typographical artwork, and you could say I really like it. Plus, there are so many other interesting options… like 49 others.
So go check them all out, and buy a print for a fellow citizen who might appreciate “something steeped in history but completely modern and unique: A kind of designer’s atlas” (taken from the State Mottos Project website).
