I agree. The snowboarder looks like a large rodent and the skier well, not bad but it's just sort of dumb. Paul Rand (Ibm, Westinghouse, Next computer logos ) would basically consider this just poor design.
I consider the current Colorado license plate to be one of the last decent plates around, in fact it's really nice. It's one of the last to maintain a very simple yet effective and descriptive graphic.
Almost every state now seems to want to change to some ridiculous, over-complicated slogany thing. Let's throw in a sunset or a beach scene or some kind of photo. Now you can't even tell what state the plate is from a distance whereas that used to be quite easy if you new the colorscheme.
I hope New Mexico doesn't change that nice yellow one.
