the goods: 50 states design project

The past few months, I have been updating the artwork around my house.  I’ve made some of the art and purchased some pieces that I’ve found online.  In my searches, I time and time again find myself drawn to geography based art — maybe it comes from growing up in a house filled with maps.  When I came across the 50 States Design Project, I fell in love.   Graphic designer, Joshua Best, set out to design a poster for each of the 50 United States.  He has released 38 so far, each filled with a certain whimsy – to me, these feel more like concert posters than nod to a state.  Below are some of my favorites:

swoon: Turquoise and Red

I have been obsessing over the turquoise and red combo lately. I’m pretty certain my love for turquoise and red started at birth thanks to the yearly summer time vacations to New Mexico with the family.  Over the years, it’s become a staple within my wardrobe thanks to my mom’s awesome hand me down jewelry. Regardless, I love the application of it within other mediums and had to pin my favorites.
