United Plates of America (31/56 Nevada)


Recommended Posts

I love this series! You've done a terrific job so far.  I have a question about the Minnesota plate: have you tried using some various shades of green for the evergreen trees at the bottom?

A solid concept for Minnesota. What about using the north star in the middle instead of the state as the separator between numbers and letters? 

 

Glad you liked Minnesota!

 

I wanted to keep the North Star with the state name to give the loon something to "aspire" to, but here's a version with the North Star in the middle just for you:

Thank you so much, and I'm glad you're enjoying the series! :)

 

I originally thought about coloring the trees with various shades of green, but I didn't want it to end up looking like the current Manitoba plates. Plus, I felt like just using the shades of blue really gives off the calm, wintry vibes that I was trying to go for in this design.

MISSISSIPPI

My Mississippi license plate redesign is inspired by the new state flag adopted in 2020. The state’s distinctive “Curly S” logo is retained and is now placed on a red bar inspired by the flag. A wavy yellow bar represents the Mississippi River, and the magnolia flower returns as a serial divider for the first time since 2007.

Dude, I've been following this thread for a while and finally signed up because I wanted to say that you've been doing some top-notch work. I'd love to see you take on Canadian plates once you finish this series.

Thanks so much, and welcome to the forums! :)

 

I've thought about Canadian plates here and there, and maybe I could take those on next!

MISSOURI

My Missouri design is largely inspired by the state flag and the Gateway Arch, Missouri’s most famous landmark. The overall design is a combination of eras with the wave elements (representing the Mississippi and Missouri rivers) of the 2018 license plate and the gradients of the 1997 license plate. The serifs of the “M” in the state name is inspired by a map of Missouri.

I've reached the halfway point of this series, which means that my Alabama to Missouri plates are now posted on Behance! Please check it out :)

Starting off the second half of this series with...

 

MONTANA

My Montana license plate redesign plays into the “Big Sky Country” nickname. Every standard Montana license plate since the 1930s has included the state map, and a county map becomes the “clouds” of the Montana sky. A blue mountainscape fills the bottom half of the plate similar to the 2000 and 2011 standard plates.

Your subtle typography treatment on Missouri is fantastic!

And what I like about Montana is that the "county map clouds" also have a bit of a rocky effect to them, emphasizing the mountain aspect of it all.

 

Keep up the awesome work!

 

Thank you so much! :)

 

I'm glad you liked the Missouri typography, and I actually didn't even catch the "rocky" texture of the clouds so I appreciate the as well!

NEBRASKA

My Nebraska license plate reintroduces the red state map plates used in the late 1960s & early 1970s and introduces the retro font from the Nebraska welcome signs. Chimney Rock & the Sandhills from western Nebraska complement the Nebraska State Capitol & a city skyline from eastern Nebraska in the landscape.

NEVADA

This Nevada license plate is inspired by the neon casino lights that glow against the midnight sky all over Nevada. The iconic shape of the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” sign frames the state name, which is in a Western font to represent its rugged Old West history. Neon mountains line the top similar to Nevada’s 2001-2016 license plate, and a dark blue gradient references the state’s blue license plates used from 1969 to 1984.
