WeTransfer X Golden Record Zine

Digital tabloid printed on 90gsm bright paper

LAD Design created this limited-edition zine as part of WeTransfer's A Message from Earth project, which asked 40 contributors – from photographers to DJs to astronomers– to create a work inspired by the Voyager Golden Record.

The publication is art directed by Lawrence Azerrad, who designed the Grammy-nominated Golden Record 3xLP Vinyl Box Set and album covers for artists including Wilco, Miles Davis and Sting. He tells us: "We've tried to distill the essence of the project into print, and capture some of the spirit of hope, determination, and goodwill which inspired Carl Sagan and his team in 1977, and inspires us four decades later."

Lucy: A Good Dog

Digital tabloid printed on 55gsm improved newsprint

The world lost a good dog last month. David H. Taylor created this newspaper obituary for his family's black lab, Lucy, who made many friends at David's psychiatry practice in California during her 15 years. "I’m a lifelong obituary reader, so telling her story in that way seemed a natural fit to mark her passing properly," says David, who left copies in the waiting room at his office for patients to read. "She greeted everyone at work and is missed by many people from various walks of life."

You can read the text of Lucy's obituary on David's website. Newspaper design by Virgil Taylor.

Congratulations to Maya and Cody, who were married in Brooklyn in March. They're both avid zine and paper ephemera collectors, and Maya is a print designer, so their wedding was the perfect excuse to make something fun with paper. "Once we knew we were going to create a crossword for the occasion a newspaper was a natural fit," Maya tells us. "Also, the large format meant we could fit our ceremony, menu, and wedding party all together but still have space for play, like mazes and crosswords."
