Design Turnpike founded by David Bowman is a platform where he creates artwork and sells it. Bowman became fascinated with car license plates from around the world. This fascination started at a tender age where he started to make collections of them. Bowman included the license plate that was installed on his first car
in 1998, in his art collections. Bowman has a studio in Detroit, Michigan, which is a center for automobile manufacturing. He has working relationships with a few art galleries through which he sells artwork that he creates. Bowman also sells his art through Design Turnpike and his website where customers can get license plate art prints and map art.
