I like the new plate a lot better, but it’s a little over designed. All that beige text in the background is just clutter, is inreadable and takes away from the impact of the red wing graphic/ icon which is pretty awesome on its own.November 29, 2011 1:05 pm at 1:05 pm #472132
I kind of like the sample design posted that has a whole bunch of slogans, facts, URLs and other stuff all scattered about in slightly different (but complimentary) typefaces.
I’d rather see that instead of having it narrowed down to just one.
My understanding is that the voting is to help establish a group of slogans/etc that will be distributed over the background in the same way the sample plate shows.

I think the background is a good design solution to the relentless pressure to include the favorite dipshit slogan of every member of a committee overseeing a project like this. The fact that it will be subtle (i.e., mostly unreadable) is a benefit, and on the drivers license it’ll be a security feature.November 29, 2011 1:51 pm at 1:51 pm #472133

I’m torn between “Mother of Presidents” and “Rubber Capital of the World”, but I’d definitely go with “Steel” if it were changed slightly to “Steel!”November 29, 2011 1:54 pm at 1:54 pm #472135
In the piece on one of the news stations, the person froom the DMV said there will be a customizable line of 13-14 characters on each of the plates and we’ll get to pick what we want it to say. I thought this was most intriguing. And seems like there would be a lot of policing.November 29, 2011 2:02 pm at 2:02 pm #472136

Since these are all made by prison labor, it could get interesting…November 29, 2011 2:38 pm at 2:38 pm #472137

The current Ohio farm plates are terrible. This is a good change. We avoided getting the farm plates by going with the personalized option.
I’d prefer if license plates were more Euro. Smaller profile and simple.

What if it were a picture of Wayward Seed farm instead? ;)November 29, 2011 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #472140

We did go with the Sustainable Farming plates. It’s got a nice graphic of the State of Ohio on it without going overboard.November 29, 2011 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #472141
They used to play around with typography and O-H-I-ONovember 29, 2011 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #472142
Those are nice form factors. Why did they have to plump them up in the first place?November 29, 2011 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #472143
I wish the plates said “Home of Innovation”. Some of the greatest inventions of the 20th Century had roots in Ohio. Anything better that the farmville plate we had.
