Power of Plates

Thesis Statement

Gen Z & the Power of Plates

License plates reach every single person in the United States, yet their design is neglected. Location branding embodies the culture of a state, shows pride, and draws people to an area. Gen Z’s awareness derives them from any other generations mindset. They’re original, determined, and bold. This project uses graphic design and the mindset of Gen Z to show the power of plates.
