Design Turnpike creates art and maps using vintage recycled license plates. This small business is based just outside of Detroit, Michigan.

As a boy, David Bowman loved keeping track of license plates. On road trips, he entertained himself by keeping a tally of all plates he saw on the road along the way. Family vacations to New Mexico, South Dakota, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Canada, and many other destinations exposed him to the wealth of color, style, and personality of each state’s tag. His interest in maps, geography, travel, and crafting inspired his license plate artwork.

Working from Detroit, the birthplace of the modern automobile, he continues to brainstorm and produce various new designs along with some of the classic license plate maps shown throughout his website.

This large license plate map is created using vintage genuine plates from all 50 states! Dominating the room, it makes a lifelong conversation piece and adds “wow” factor to any space, whether it’s your home, business or a retail setting. Each map is a unique handmade creation, incorporating bold colors and mounted on rich distressed wood planks.
