Working with the Burlingame Historical Society, graphic artist Don Donoughe ’80 recently created a mural for the California city’s downtown.

Reminiscent of antique postcards, the mural features a different image inside each letter of “Burlingame.” Together, the images—from historical photos to an oil painting of eucalyptus trees by Don’s twin, Ron Donoughe ’80—help tell the city’s story.

Don’s design was transferred through a digital process onto more than 3,000 ceramic tiles that make up the 15′-by-47′ mural.

A native of Loretto, Don lives in Burlingame. More about his work is on his website, Donoughe Design.

Donoughe Mural Installation

Workers installed more than 3,000 tiles for the 15'-by-47' mural.
