Chapter 80, State Plates Project


Fifty American graphic designers were challenged by the Atlanta-based designer Jonathan Lawrence to “redesign each state’s license plate with an eye toward the restraint and sophistication of yesteryear”. Lawrence thoughtfully has observed that:
“Old license plates have so much character and attention to detail. Our old metal plates combined good design and functionality, and somewhere over the last 50 years, that good design part got lost. Today’s plates don’t have half the character the old ones do.”
This project merits to be included in the History of Graphic Design.
