I tried to keep my plate simple and straightforward. Louisiana has always been a place of nature for me so instead of going with the state fleur des li symbol I wanted to bring back the pelican icon that was used on the old plates back in the 1930’s to 1960’s.

I always thought that Louisiana’s script font was just a rip off of California’s plate, so I tried to go with a thinner weight script and hid a subtle fishing hook in the L to give it some state personality. I also had to get the word Parish in there, since Louisiana uses it instead of county, and because it just sounds awesome.
