Kansas © Luke BottFifty and Fifty is a design project dedicated to state mottos. They tagged a different designer to showcase each state. You can see the motto of my home state, the great state of Kansas above, as well as some of my other favorites below. I found the Missouri illustration to be a clever take on the "Show Me State" idea (though that isn't its motto but its nickname). I also think Texas has a great motto - "Friendship".
Go here to check out all of the states, although not every state is posted yet. They roll out a new state each day. Enjoy!
