What we did was research the language and the things in each us state have in common, things they all know, and have common knowledge about, then use them in the welcome message to them when they land on the website. The idea is that the website can track the location of the user based on their IP address, which would allow the page to be displayed differently users from different states. Therefore, using information we gathered from our font research about the relevant fonts, we were able to create an ‘el paso style design, note the packaging of the el paso box here;
then note the images we created for the different states below.
