As a boy Dave Bowman loved license plates. His six-hundred-mile-a-day trips were enlivened by keeping a list of the many diverse plates he saw on the road along the way. Family road trips to New Mexico, South Dakota, Florida, New Brunswick and many other destinations exposed him to the wealth of color, style and personality of each state’s tag. A separate but genuine love for maps, geography and crafting grew to inspire the license plate art and maps he creates today for Design Turnpike. Working from Dearborn, Michigan, the birthplace of the modern automobile, he continues to brainstorm and produce various new designs, cool and classic license plate maps, and commissioned work.
