As part of visibility commitments around the programmes, UNICEF will need the services of graphic designers to create powerful visual materials that highlight the impact of investments in the different programme areas, help raise awareness on a range of child rights issues and support efforts to fundraise for the country office. These services are required on a regular basis throughout the year and oftentimes, this specialty is required immediately, especially during times of emergency.
The purpose is therefore for UNICEF to have in place a pool of graphic designers, who can be listed in the internal roster for standby arrangements and called upon as and when a need arises.
Purpose and Objectives
The graphic materials produced will highlight the impact of UNICEF supported programmes. They will demonstrate how UNICEF and Government, with support from various donors have put in place interventions to support the survival, growth and development of children across the country.
The materials will be used on local and global online and offline platforms to raise awareness on a range of child rights issues, highlight the work of UNICEF and demonstrate the current needs of children and their families
Methodology, technical approach
The graphic designer will work with the External Relations and Advocacy unit and the various programme sections to create powerful visual materials that help raise awareness on a range of child rights issues and highlight the impact of investments in the different programme areas.
Throughout the process, the contractor will receive regular input and feedback from UNICEF, until a final version is agreed upon.
The number and specifications of the various graphic materials required will be agreed on between the contractor and UNICEF.
