Auburn grad creates Alabama state motto gig poster for design project

We dare defend good design.

Fifty graphic designers — one per state — were recently asked to illustrate their state’s motto for Fifty and Fifty, “a curated project which attempts to construct a handsome new way of looking at our country.”

Called “a kind of designer’s atlas,” the project is the brainchild of Dan Cassaro, a design and typography go-getter best known for his Springsteenian map of New Jersey.

Auburn man, former Black Lodge Band frontman, Standard Deluxe alum, and all-around bad boy Matt Lane Harris was the designer chosen to represent the noble state of Alabama.

We think he did the Heart of Dixie proud.
