...so here's my entry in the recent public tender intended to update design of the old license plates (show here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicle_…
). Although I didn't win here are couple of my thoughts on the subject, for everyone to possibly criticise and complement, build upon.
Here are the tender winners (in reverse order): danas.net.hr/2015/03/06/021000…
I must note that design was restricted in several key aspects:
a) dimensions were predefined,
b) letters must be black, and backgroud must be white (unfortunately),
b) European Union's flag (far left) has it's own set of key dimensions.
Given the restrictions it all comes down to the making/choosing appropriate typeface and symbol that will represent some paft of Croatian culture...:/
Also I woul like to mention that checkerboar stripes on top and botttom of the license plate may be obsure by the ol license plate frame na the wave shaped gray curve on each plate is visualisation of polarized anti-copying stripe.
