Nebraska Punk'd Into Ugly License Plate Design


So the Nebraska design community is up in arms over the state's new license plate design calling it "boring, uninspired and ugly." A site, Get Ready For Action, has been launched telling "The Story of How Gov. Dave Heineman Got Punk'd and an Entire State Was Shamed."

You see, four submissions were made to the Governor's office. College Humor saw then and told their vast audience to all vote for the ugliest of the four designs. That design won and is now destined to become the state's plate. That is unless this group of disgruntled creatives can mount enough support to get the thing changed.

In addition to the website, there's videos, images and a blog.

The goal of this effort is to "get as many people around the nation to laugh at Nebraska and the awful way our governor has handled the entire situation."

While the group agrees the "plates aren't that big a deal in the grand scheme of things," we offer up a more definitive viewpoint; It's a fucking license plate.

Be that as it may, the group hopes to "remove the notion that we are a boring, uninspired, and ugly state."

From Omaha...exactly what we deserve for being so cheap and naive. Many, many cool and interesting designers live here (I am not one of them) and have pleaded with the state not to do this. So, we got owned, and we should have to wear it.
