The second edition of Quaranzine - a worldwide collaborative zine to spread hope, refine new skills and build a community through lockdown.

by Project Fade in London, England, United Kingdom

We all have a lot more time on our hands and not a lot to do with it. Like most people, I've been getting claustrophobic through this period of isolation. Especially as a designer - if I'm stuck inside, not out taking photos, visiting exhibitions or at a music gig, my mind will be racing with ideas. With limited creative outlets, this can be super frustrating.

To combat this, I launched an artistic punchbag for frustrated creatives around the world in March. An open call to anyone with a creative spark and more time than they know what to do with.

After the success of the first edition, and the introduction of new lockdown measures in the UK throughout November and December, Quaranzine 2.0 was born!

What is Quaranzine?

Quaranzine is a collaborative zine to spread hope, learn new skills and build a sense of community. Each contributor is given a spread or page of an A4 zine and complete creative freedom. The goal is simply to make light of our newfound free time and create something positive in such a negative period.

Submissions so far have ranged from watercolour paintings to collages, photography to poetry, and illustrations to UI. Creatives  have taken part from a wide range of backgrounds, including: tattoo artists, needleworkers, architects and students.

This edition also features 12 spreads covering one specific event in each month of 2020. The content of these spreads was collected in real time throughout the year by Project Fade.

The final product will be a representation of how creativity and design can help during a time of crisis. By filling time, providing media to consume, creating a sense of community, and by spreading the right message, design can provide solace for everyone when they need it most.

This Crowdfunder will allow the zine to become a reality. We simply need funding to cover the printing and distribution costs.

How are we raising money?

Pledge £11 to reserve a copy of the zine. Every reservation includes worldwide shipping and your name added to the "Special Thanks" page in the zine.

The current target covers the printing and distribution costs for around 30 copies at good quality. If we break our target, we can produce higher quality products for everyone - and make more money for charity.

Any remaining stock and excess funds will be donated in aid of the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and I will personally match that donation to Cool Earth.

If you want to pledge more than the value of a single book - we have a range of rewards for you to choose from, or you could consider simply adding a donation on top.

We will be touch after the campaign to confirm delivery addresses.

We will print and ship your order even if the target is not reached.

What's in the zine?

17 brilliant creatives have designed 30+ spreads in a mashup of styles, techniques and media. Everything from collage to 3D design, including poetry and other great ideas. Some in the language of the designers origin, most in English.

We are still finishing things off, but we're expecting something like 60 pages. Check out the instagram page @in.Quaranzine to stay up to date.

The zine will have a high quality finish (much better than 1.0), and will be a nice memorial of the interesting year we've all had.

When will it be ready?

The estimated fulfilment and delivery dates are very much an estimate. These will change depending on the most recent advice for visiting post offices, access to stock, extended print times and reliability of the shipping providers.

!!  We will not ship until we are confident everyone will receive their products safely.
