United Plates of America (FINALE)


Recommended Posts

WISCONSIN

At the request of @NicDB, I eliminated the state’s longtime “America’s Dairyland” slogan to reflect Wisconsin’s urbanizing population. Inspired by the 1998 Sesquicentennial license plates, my redesign combines several Wisconsin landscapes: dairy farms, the Apostle Islands, and the Milwaukee skyline. The wordmark is inspired by an optional plate design and contains two truckles of cheese above each “I”. The serial divider is inspired by Wisconsin’s unique state highway shields and the state’s motto is found at the bottom.

Oh man... you nailed it on Wisconsin. If you told me that had been the plates for the past 30 years I wouldn't even question it. Also, not sure if that's what inspired it, but your wordmark looks remarkably like the Something Special From Wisconsin logo.

 

I especially love the buck staring at the skyline. #FearTheDeer

Thanks so much for helping out with Wisconsin, and I'm glad you liked it! :)

 

I'd never seen that Something Special from Wisconsin logo before, and it's such a fun coincidence!

Last but not least!

 

WYOMING

My Wyoming license plate is heavily inspired by a fictional Wyoming sports logo designed by Jordan Grimes, which features colors from the Grand Prismatic Spring at Yellowstone National Park. The hot spring motif is combined with the mountain scenes featured in previous license plates, and the red border and shade of blue is taken from the state flag. The historic bucking bronco used on Wyoming plates since 1936 remains.

Compilations coming up a little later! :)

First off, congratulations on the completion of a top tier project; truly some fantastic work.  Recreating all the renewal stickers is also a top tier detail that adds a lot to the authenticity.

 

While the Wisconsin highway shape is unique, the current shape is a compromise so that numbers can fit well; originally, the Wisconsin highway marker was just a downward pointing triangle:

Could be a bit cleaner to make the divider the downward pointing triangle, plus then it could look like some minimalist cheese and who doesn't love a bit more cheese?

Dude, you killed it with all of these! Well done!

 

Have you given any more thought to doing Canada next? I'd love to see those as well!

I think it'd be cool to do other countries as well.

The dots in the i's of the Wisconsin wordmark are already wheels of cheese. I like the use of the current shields. Especially for something traffic related.

I do have plans of making Canadian plates, but those will have to start next month (at the earliest) because I'll be busy in the coming weeks. As far as other countries are concerned, the most I might be willing to do is my homeland of the Philippines

I'm glad that someone finally caught on to the renewal stickers! I wanted to make sure that those and the serial fonts were as accurate as possible, right down to the sticker colors

 

I have heard of the history behind the Wisconsin state highway shields, and it does make for an interesting design. I kept the cheese to the dots on the "I" to keep the cheese references subtle :)

It was a real pleasure to work on this series, and I'm really glad it's gotten a relatively positive reception. To get some "local" insights and suggestions about certain places, I consulted several people to help me out on this project. A HUGE shoutout to @raysox@DCarp1231@NicDB, @stumpygremlin, @CDCLT, @tBBP, and @TenaciousG for making sure these designs are as authentic as I can make them :)

As far as what's next, I am thinking of going through Canada's plates! That'll have to wait a month or so, though, so enjoy these 56 plates in the meantime :)

Oh man, I was along for the ride. Great great work consistently through this thread. The recent W states were phenomenal as always.

If you do want another idea i've wanted to forever make these unique license plates for EU countries. Have that one for free! Looking forward to Canada!
