Animated videos, infographics, interactive digital newsletters, video stories for distribution via unicef.ge, YouTube, news media and other outlets and platforms all are a part of our digital storytelling. Leaflets, printed newsletters and publications, branded office supplies (pens, folders, notepads, etc.) are all part of the UNICEF’s visibility and should be in line with global guidelines and brandbook.

UNICEF Georgia seeks to identify Multimedia Visualization designers who will be on the UNICEF roster and undertake all necessary actions to produce designs, multimedia visual content, as well as visibility materials as needed for the UNICEF Georgia’s ongoing programmatic work.
