Behold! The next installment of the Type City Poster Project, a design initiative and branding exercise undertaken by Joshua Best.

Welcome to The Copper State. Order a drink, and don’t worry about dusting your boots off at the door. Arizona’s not a place for wussies or sissies. So come check out the Grand Canyon, but if you’re gonna stick around, you’d better man up.
Arizona is the 6th largest state. But if it is number 1 in your eyes, get it here.
Georgia is a truly diverse state. With mountains, ocean front, rural communities, and a sprawling metropolis, this state seems to have it all. It often flies under the radar, but you won’t find a more pleasant place. In Georgia, even the air smells like peaches.

Anyway, here you go. Get this 11×15 print below.
Love it or hate it; New Jersey is something else. It is the most densely populated state, yet it’s known as “The Garden State”.

Meet Oregon. She Flies With Her Own Wings. As far as motto’s go, I can attest that this is one of the more truthful ones. She does fly with her own wings, and she’s beautiful like no other state. To live in Oregon is to be free. A little weird, but really, really free.
A great way to remember any trip to Oregon. Get it here.
Leave your smart phone at home because no app can enhance your encounter with Wyoming. That’s right, there’s not a latte in sight, and it’s fantastic.

If you need to connect with nature, visit Wyoming. It will change you.
