The State Plates Project by Jonathan Lawrence

Atlanta-based designer Jonathan Lawrence approached 50 different artists from every state in America and challenged them to “redesign each state’s license plate with an eye toward the restraint and sophistication of yesteryear”.

He explains the motivation behind the project in an interview for Co.Design:

“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.”
