Inviting Hische License Plates

2012_0131


invitinghische.com

We convinced dozens of people to change their Pennsylvania Department of Transportation vehicle registrations to compose an invitation to letterer/illustrator Jessica Hische across a series of 27 custom Pennsylvania license plates.

We captured images of the participants and their new plates for a web site-based invitation to Jessica: invitinghische.com. Within minutes of the tweet to @jessicahische she replied - "I AM CRYING! YOU MADE ME CRY!," "and the answer of course is YES! I will marry you! I mean come to Pennsylvania."

Aside from the tens of thousands of tweets and Facebook posts, dozens of blog articles, and media requests from around the globe, the project resulted in a Society of Design event in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania on March 14, 2013 that attracted more than 500 attendees from eight states and more than twenty colleges.
