Rethinking the Design of the Birth Certificate


Wednesday, April 10th, 2013 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

The iconeye magazine has this gallery of images for I WANT design's take on a revised birth certificate.

All the information on the existing birth certificate is kept — mother, father, name, registrar. For location we added mapping co-ordinates, for the digital version. We then added more detail — exact time of birth, type of birth, physical attributes including weight, length, head circumference, hand and foot prints, blood type and eye and hair colour; then astrological and astronomical details — moon cycle, ruling planet, weather. We included the etymology of the given name, the birth flower and stone, religion and the ruling monarch.
