Designer Defends Options For New Iowa Vehicle License Plates


The graphic designer of the new Iowa license plate options has expressed her disappointment and frustration with some critics of the designs.

Gov. Kim Reynolds and Transportation Department Director Mark Lowe unveiled the three possible designs Friday, and people have been invited to vote for their favorite.

Iowa Transportation Department employee Christina Andersen said in Facebook post that some of the criticism on social media brought her to tears. She also said she was artistically hamstrung by law enforcement considerations, which require that the numbers and letters be easily read by police officers.

Andersen didn’t immediately return email and voicemail messages Monday from The Associated Press.
