Hey, it's Sue here!  On our way to Nashville so we thought we'd spend the week doing a throwback to previous posts!  To start it off, we thought we'd share this little ditty from Design Turnpike, originally posted in August 28, 2013, of his map of the good old USA in honor of the Winter Olympics!  Love it! ~Sue



So, a previous client called and asked, "Just how big of a map COULD you make?" And so, this project began. Months later, I am ready to ship out a map made of license plates that is 10 feet wide by 6 feet high, and weighs well over 100 pounds. It heads onto a freight truck this week for a trip out west to California, where it will adorn the walls of an aviation company's lobby. This project was a massive challenge: from the scale of the states, to the concept and creation of a board big enough and strong enough to hold itself up. Hope you enjoy!
