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.
A collection of logos created for UNICEF's innovation products.
Nairobi Innovation Week Agenda
This was designed to be printed on small cards as well as displayed on TV screens around the week long event. There was one designed for each day.
AI for good: Special dinner invite
Invite options for a special dinner at a 'top secret' location hosted by UNICEF Innovation for some selected AI for Good Summit attendees in Geneva. It was hosted at a traditional Eritrean family run restaurant.
Janani Express Creatives
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
WHS Event Booklet ‘Reshaping Emergency Response’
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.
The Office Of Innovation Diversity Map
A map of all our past + present team members. We currently represent 22 countries.
Nairobi Innovation Week 2017
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.
Overview Donor Report
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.
The Innovation Lemonade Cart: Concept
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.
Daily Stair Run-time graph
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 + UNICEF Innovation Partnership Y1 Report
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.
From designers to event planners
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.
Falling in love with PPT/Keynote
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.
Field documentation story cards
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.
