Browning Design was commissioned by Bob Evans Farms to illustrate and design the mural image for their 2016 barn project. The project honors the U.S. armed forces and brings awareness to the Gary Sinise Foundation's efforts to to support military families.

Browning Design worked directly with the Ohio History Connection to develop a series of designs for barns that are located in various Ohio counties. Each barn's theme is based on a famous person from that county. Steve George of OHC plans the projects and locates the folks around Ohio who volunteer their barns. David Browning illustrates and designs the reference artwork. The barns are later painted on-site in each county by Scott Hagan. David's original reference artwork is shown below.
