The State Plates Project

“Over the past 50 years the American license plate has taken a turn for the worse. We’re here to change that,” is the mission of The State Plates Project, and the brains behind the operation, Jonathan Lawrence. I couldn’t agree more, as there is very little to be desired in the design (or lack thereof) of state license plates.

Over the past three months 49 designer friends of Jonathan have taken on the task of redesigning their state’s plate. The project was completed on December 31,  so you view all of their creations (check out the archive here)!

The idea behind the project was combining good design with functionality, something Jonathan believes seems to be lacking, and that it is something that can be changed.

I compiled some of favorites below, so check them out! What are some of your faves?

The A to Zoë Project

If I had to pick a go-to social media platform, it would undoubtably be Instagram (you can follow me @Svetsxpres). In the past couple of years I’ve come across some amazing artists who’ve inspired me tremendously. One of those effortless artists is Tommy Perez.

He’s done some pretty incredible projects, but my favorite has to be the A to Zoë food-typography collaboration he did with his 2-year-old daughter Zoë. Through this project he is teaching her the alphabet by taking food and shaping it to form the letter it begins with. Pretty nifty, huh? Letter Y was completed in early August, but Tommy never made it to Z, which is why it has taken me so long to make this post! But I couldn’t wait any longer, so the # (for Hash-Brown) has taken Z’s place! Check out the entire project below, and make sure to follow more of his creations on Instagram (@t-rez).
