The Newly Unveiled Colorado State Credentials Boast a More Vibrant Design

Colorado residents can expect some noticeable changes to their driver’s licenses and state identification cards. The Colorado Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) recently unveiled the Iconic Credential, a new design that is both bold and unique. Over 55,000 residents chose from a pool of entries, submitted by 119 artists across the state. The winners of the contest were two photographers, Gabriel Dupon and Matt Nuñez. Nuñez’s design was used for the front of the card and Dupon’s was used for the back. Colorado Creative Industries awarded each winner with a $500 grant.

This newly designed credential features a scenic mountainside image, backed by a vibrant and colorful backdrop. The word “Colorado” is printed in bold type to add to the boldness of the design. Colorado state governor, Jared Polis, is pleased with the new design and its representation of the state. During a press conference held at the History Colorado Center, Polis stated that this was the first time Colorado residents were able to assist with the choosing of their state’s official credentials.

Not only did the card go through aesthetic changes, there were also improvements made to its overall makeup. Each license and identification card is made using some of the latest anti-counterfeiting technology. The card is also made of 100% polycarbonate, making it extremely sturdy and durable.

Mark Ferrandino, who serves as the executive director of the Colorado Department of Revenue (CDOR), shares Polis’ sentiments about the new credential. In fact, Ferrandino believes the Iconic Credential is one of the best designs he has ever seen.
