Grad-Designed California License Plate Needs 7,500 Orders by May
March 12, 2017
Titan Wyn Ericson's design for the California State Parks license plate was one of 27 entries considered.
Supporters of California's state parks are trying to inject some new visibility and money into the venerable system of 280 parks with a proposed commemorative license plate designed by Titan Wyn Ericson '03 (B.A. art-teaching), '04 (credential).
For the state Department of Motor Vehicles to begin producing the plate, which features an image of a redwood forest, it needs 7,500 pre-paid orders by May 18. But as of March 12, only 647 orders were received, and environmental groups are ramping up efforts to sell as many as they can in the next two months.
Ericson's art won a statewide contest and was unveiled in November 2015. Proceeds from the sale and annual renewal of the plate will fund restoration and preservation of state parks across California. Continue reading and view the photos and interview with Ericson in The Mercury News.
