Pro Bono Time
We are looking for a great and simple infographic to help visually explain our international climate change program, Go Beyond Fellows. We are currently looking for corporate partners for the project, and find that we have to spend 10 minutes explaining the intricacies of the project. Once they understand, they think it's a great idea.. we would just like for that to happen more quickly.
Infographics quickly convey complex data and information in a visually appealing, clear and engaging format. An example of infographics can be viewed here.
A static infographic design delivered in the agreed upon file format.
The organization completes the Design Brief in preparation for the initial project meeting.
The pro bono designer and the organization conduct an initial meeting to brainstorm the organization’s objectives, intended use (e.g. print or web) of the infographic, target audience, key messages to convey through the infographic, and determine the file format of the final design (e.g. JPG, PNG, etc.). Recommended: the organization provides 3-5 sample infographics to the designer as a creative guideline for the initial concept.
The organization and designer review all available data that can be used in the infographic to ensure the objectives can be achieved and key message can be conveyed, and brainstorm the theme and style of the infographic.
The designer and the organization finalize the information and content to be included in the infographic.
The designer completes 2-3 initial concept sketches of the design themes, layout and arrangement of the information.
The designer and the organization review the initial concept sketches and decide the one design concept to move forward.
Based on the selected design concept, the designer drafts the infographic and goes through 2-3 rounds of reviewing the design with the organization.
The designer delivers the final design of the infographic in the agreed upon file format.
Please Note: The designer must be appropriately credited alongside any and all uses of the design (editorial, print, web, etc.). The designer’s exact credit must be given upon delivery of final product to ensure proper credit.
