Rethinking the birth certificate

For the April issue of Icon Magazine design agency IWANT rethought the birth certificate.

The birth certificate is the first official document you are given in what is hopefully a long life of much lesser forms and documentation. It is the official record that you have arrived and is special for those involved. The current document feels historical and archival, but doesn’t offer much information or feel special.

I really like the layout, but I’m not keen on having nonsense like the Zodiac sign included – and especially not a given religion. As Dawkins points out, “There is no such thing as a Christian child: only a child of Christian parents.”
