A collection of completely random projects done over a period of time. These are only a few examples of the variety of work this design team tries to get done.
A survival guide for the employees of UNICEF Innovation. This website pulls together documents, processes, protocol (both said and unsaid) and other fun stuff that is essential for anyone working here. The aim was to simplify the sometimes complex bureaucratic information provided to us in one place.
Janani Express is a program initiated by the government of Madhya Pradesh and UNICEF in India to address high maternal mortality rates. It is a transport system with a fleet of contracted private vehicles and a centrally located 24 x 7 call centre that provides free transportation for pregnant women and children to get to institutions. These visuals were created as a way of explaining steps in the system. It supplements a short piece that can be found here
A booklet designed to outline the use of RapidPro and U-Report in emergency settings. This booklet provides an outlook to the future of how these solutions will continue to evolve in support of more effective and adaptive humanitarian action.
This was a way finding system that was proposed for the week long event which UNICEF Innovation was a part of. The design team worked with a local event management team in Nairobi as well as the events lead to plan the deliverables for which the deadline was 2 days.
Our attempt at creating a donor report that gives you an overview of funds in one look. While this report can be considered as too simplified, we wanted to create something that can be used as 'page 1' followed by all the other content that is needed in a report.
An isometric illustration of a movable installation at the various events we attend. The purpose of this cart was to be an all-in-one presentation for all the work we do at UNICEF Innovation - while also moving through the event easily. This cart is a work in progress and hopefully will be constructed one day.
As a way to avoid the snooze zone around 4:30PM, some of us started running up the stairs - that's 15 floors - everyday (almost)
To keep it interest, we started alternating between a single-step and double-step run. What followed next was the inevitable time record wall. This is our ~6 month progress, visualised.
ARM is one of our key technology partners. The design team was tasked with designing the year 1 annual report for ARM and UNICEF Innovation Partnership. The complete publication design and production was done in-house.
Holding true to the statement of 'doing everything all the time', this team has a very all hands on deck kind of approach to work. Before the days of our event planner, the design team was responsible for executing large and small scale events. Below you can see an example of what happens when you give a floor plan to a designer.
A lot of the presentation decks we create need to be editable by people in the field who are only familiar or equipped with Powerpoint. While Powerpoint is usually a tool designers prefer to avoid, we gritted our teeth and challenged ourselves to make Powerpoint presentations as much beautiful as they were easy to understand and customize.
Below are a couple of slides from our 'about UNICEF Innovation' slide deck template. Here, you can see that we've incorporated friendly iconography and colors that celebrate the UNICEF innovation story in an updated and fresh way.
More and more of our projects demand the use of icons and our design fellow for fall 2016 created this beautiful set of icons that we can now use across the board. The following diagram is an example of a use case where we explain the system of mTrac using a simple diagram.
This is an early lo-fi prototype of a field guide we created to help people document their trips in a format which could later be used to make a blog post. It was designed to be shared directly over whatsapp or messenger.
