Initially inspired by the Googie architecture of the 20th century, we set out to create another flagship jigsaw puzzle for Re-Marks to go alongside their bestselling Map of the USA puzzle. What started as zany became more subdued, ending with a nice balance of original inspiration and the existing puzzle. Individual tile icons were illustrated by Shanghee Shin.

Some early drafts of the puzzle featured a wonkier tile layout for puzzling benefit, as well as more Googie inspired signs.

The Box

It was a challenge deciding whether or not to include the full table on the box, but we decided against it in order to achieve better presence on the shelf. A printout of the complete puzzle is provided for reference while building.
