Monday, January 16 will supposedly be the most miserable day of the year. To lift the mood a little, publishers The Church of London are writing and printing a one-off newspaper called The Good Times. And they need your help
The paper is being produced in just seven days (it’s now day three) and will be distributed free around London on the 16th. The Church of London say “It’s an exercise in collaborative, bottom-up journalism with ideas sourced globally through our social media channels. The paper will cover politics, technology, sport, art, the environment as well as journalism and design, focusing on positive, life-affirming stories that offer an alternative narrative to the doom and gloom of the daily news media.”
For the Journalism and Design pages, Church of London is asking people from all over the world one simple question: what design makes you smile? “This could be any design, from a concept through to print, online or a physical object.” (It might even be Harvey Ball’s Smiley Face, designed in 1963, above).
