Joshua Best is gonna redesign your state for the better

One of the advantages to having a blog is that it keeps us in tune with a lot of sites by artists that we wouldn’t know about otherwise. True, we often have to take the easy way out and share topics that others have brought to our attention. But by sheer luck, we happened across Joshua Best’s 50 States Design Project.

A proud design and geography nerd, my goal is to merge the two by applying a custom design to the shape of every state. 50 states, 50 weeks. Let’s do it.

Aided by captions that are lyrically insightful, the images are unique, depicting a sentiment or concept about that particular state. If you dig his work as much as we do, you’ll want to check out Josh’s Etsy store where he sells his prints. In the meantime, we picked some of our favorites below. He’s done 17, so far – we can’t wait to see how Mass turns out!
“Original Oklahoma”“Washing Washington”“Yippee Tennessee”“Sunny Rhode Island”“Michigan’s Mittens”“Rusty Idaho”
