The purpose of this study is to analyze functional and visual aspects of driver license for social response. Security Printing Design provides a distinctive and secure identification in its usage such as for passports, IDs, currencies, etc. One of these items at risk, the U.S. driver’s license, is used as common personal identification every day. In this research, high-secured personal identification is a significant concern to address functional and visual problems. Driver license verifies personal identity in public places of the U.S., however all different designs through fifty states cause difficulty of proving it regally issued. Each state addresses different regulations of indicating legal age and design layout with texts, symbols, graphics, colors, etc. As a result of no awareness of visual difference, it carries difficulty in visually recognizing a driver license as a legal document. In addition, drivers’ licenses should be distinctive and high-secured designs from other bank and membership cards. Many countries have tried to make national ID cards more complicated and difficult to copy by incorporating high security. It shows the most advanced technology and high-security features such as micro-printing, invisible fluorescent, rainbow effects, holograms, etc. Those considerations require a highly-artistic craft and design for the best quality. A new design through this study is expected to bring more discussion for social response of personal identity in the future.
