Commissioned by Icon magazine for the Rethink feature of its April edition, designers at IWANT set out to create a birth certificate worth cherishing.

The information is displayed in a grid and is printed in black foil blocked onto watermarked heavyweight card, which comes in four colours representing the seasons, all housed in a heavy, glossy, white envelope with the baby’s basic information embossed on the front and then secured with a wax seal.

All the information on the existing birth certificate is kept – mother, father, name, registrar – but more information is added. Physical attributes such as weight, length and head circumference are represented with graphic symbols while prints are taken of tiny hands and feet. Other details including astrological, astronomical and etymological facts are also included, plus mapping coordinates for location of birth are added to the digital version.
