Consultancy assignment: Design Report on 20 Years of the UNICEF MICS Programme (Remote based)

If you are a passionate and committed professional and want to make a lasting difference for children, the world's leading children's rights organization would like to hear from you.


UNICEF, the world’s leading organization working for the rights of children, seeks a consultant to design, layout and typesetting of the MICS at 20 report.  MICS at 20 is intended to be used as a global, regional and country-level advocacy tool to garner more support for the MICS programme and serve as a spring board for discussion about MICS.

Work surrounding the MICS at 20 report includes design, layout, and typesetting as well as proofing, checking, adjusting for design consistency, and revisions. Plans are for the following deliverable to be provided:

• A 4-page full-color cover with photos
• Formatted tables, maps, charts and graphs in the body of the report (approximately 15 graphs/charts, 2 maps, 8 tables)
• An appendix with formatted tables. 

Around 15 photos from the UNICEF photo library –or other sources if best suited– will be used throughout the report.  All photos will be supplied by UNICEF as digital files (JPG). If additional images are proposed by the designer, use and costs are to be discussed and agreed upon by UNICEF before any photo research/work/charges are incurred.
The consultant (designer) will be responsible for ensuring that each document conforms to the UNICEF Style Guide maintained by the Division of Communication. These guidelines will be supplied to the consultant for reference and use.

Overall, the report should be visually appealing, celebratory, creative, simple, bold and clearly express the achievements of the MICS programme. Target audiences for this report include: UNICEF Headquarters and field officers, UN agencies, government counterparts (Ministry of Health, Statistical Offices, Ministry of Planning, etc.), academia, research community, media, NGOs and more.
