This zine is part of a series which gathers food courier stories from three European Cities: Manchester (UK), Cluj (Romania) and Lyon (France). This is a collective effort involving platform workers, researchers, artists and designers, which could not have been possible without the generous support of Leverhulme Trust, Manchester Metropolitan University, Pagini Libere and Casa Tranzit.

The illustrations, comics, drawings and paintings featured in this zine represent the work of the following:

Ionuț Dulămiță (artwork for Adeeb*)
José Sherwood González (artwork for Jérôme and Hazeem)
Alin Tămășan (artwork for Matt)
Oana Lohan (artwork for Dianka)
Letizia Bonanno (various artworks throughout the zine)
Cristian-Dan Grecu (various artworks and overall layout)
Nathanael Sheehan (multimedia content/web design)

*The couriers’ names have been changed to preserve their identities.
