The Alabama Bicentennial Commission engaged our team to create an original series of posters honoring the people, places and events that uniquely shaped Alabama counties. For Escambia County, it was important to bring to life the area’s wild reputation as a haven for outlaws and train robbers in the state’s early days.
For Escambia County, we created an original poster honoring the area’s outlandish, gunslinging past. An engraved pistol with a train piping down the barrel is inspired by one of America’s most infamous train robberies that went down in a local town.
The Escambia County poster ignited curiosity and stirred interest in the county’s epic past. It is now used to teach 4th grade Alabama history in classrooms throughout the state.
