I'm a Midwest girl, born and raised. Naturally, when I read about Chicago-based graphic designer Meng Yang's Great Lakes States Project I was completely on board. After taking a road trip with his girlfriend, Yang decided to create a poster series of the Great Lakes states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. The screen printed posters highlight each state's nickname. Yang is hoping to fund his project via a Kickstarter campaign.
