The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. We work with partners to integrate qualified, highly motivated and well supported UN Volunteers into development programming and promote the value and global recognition of volunteerism. UNV is active in around 130 countries every year. With field presences in over 80 countries, UNV is represented worldwide. UNV is administered by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
In line with these objectives, the GTM2020 is to strengthen recognition and support of volunteering through the generation and analysis of existing and new evidence, while providing a platform for the exchange of good practices, knowledge products and lessons learned. The GTM2020 will be the culmination of three years of evidence generation and validation in coordination and partnerships with multiple stakeholders at national and regional levels, in particular those from the global South.
Duties and Responsibilities
UNV is looking for an expert in conceptualizing and graphic design of infographics and data vizualisations for a range of products and materials leading up to the Global Technical Meeting (GTM) on volunteering in July, 2020. The graphics need to be along the brand guidelines of the Meeting but at the same time innovative and usable in both online and offline publications. The consultant will report to the Policy Specialist, Volunteer Advisory Services Section.
Key deliverable 1. Submission of concept and guidelines for infographics
The consultant will also produce a format for the workstreams/product leaders to fill out when requesting infographics and providing feedback on draft infographics, to ensure relevant information is provided ahead of discussion and conceptualization.
Key deliverables 2 & 4. Drafts of the different infographics
Based on commission by the different workstreams (coordinated by the Policy Specialist) the consultant will provide 25 infographics. File formats could include pdf, png, jpg, gif, eps, svg, or other vector file formats. The split of infographics/data visualizations has yet to be finalized but for indicative purposes could be something like:
1. Call to Action (1) - Summary 1-page infographic of the Call to Action - June 2020
2. Global Synthesis Report (2) 2 x infographics including one gif - April 2020
3. Global Technical Meeting materials; 2 x infographic products to be used for the website, agenda or other materials - May 2020
4. Workstream 1: Contribution to the SDGs (5); 2 data visualizations/infographics on contributions to the SDGs based on the good practices database including one gif. Due May 2020
5. Workstream 2: Acceleration matrix (5) 1 x infographic on the acceleration matrix. April 2020
6. Workstream 3: Next generation volunteering support (5)
7. Workstream 4: Measurement (5)
The consultant is to visually showcase each set of data’s main information and supporting messages and ensure that the overall design is readable, consistent, logical and visually engaging to a non-technical audience. One round of revisions would be required for each design based on consolidated feedback from UNV and partners. Final submissions would reflect the feedback and inputs gathered from UNV accordingly and conduct final changes, in order to create the final infographics in different formats. Provide the infographics, along with the individual elements in different formats – including editable versions – on a download centre. UNV has all rights to the assets.
Key deliverables 3 and 5. Production of other language versions
Key deliverable 6. Liaison with the knowledge portal developer
