The Ohio State Vehicle license plate has changed greatly over the years. From a white background, or some other solid color, with a single color text to the multiple colors recently used. The plate used today however were not created by a government for a government. The plates of today were designed by an artist and voted on by citizens. Ohio plates for the people by the people!
The design was created by Aaron Roberts, a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design. The words used were voted on by the citizen in an online vote. Some other words were added to make sure that the whole of Ohio was represented. In the end the plates became an interesting way to advertise the great state.
