A Newsletter from the UN & NGOs Designers Group Geneva
Visual Communicators Newsletter
This is a monthly newsletter from the UN Designers and Visual Communicators Group in Geneva, with the objective of raise awareness about the power of visual communications in the international organizations environment. If you have any material that would like to be featured in the newsletter, please contact us at

The Agency behind the SDGs 

Jakob Trollbäck is the founder of Trollbäck+Company which are the minds behind SDGs visual identity. In their website you can have a glimpse to their work with UN, specially videos and events. 

What they really really want 

This take on the famous Spice girls song is part of the material produced by Project Everyone, project started by Richard Curtis (Comic Relief) and which only mission is to ensure everybody in the planet knows what the SDGs are. Besides this fun video, they have produced some other amazing work that is catching world media's attention. All can be seen at their website.

New Infostories from ILO

ILO's Infostories, protagonist of our last UN designers talk, has a new entry related to Disability Inclusion. A great long-form narrative with plenty of visual inputs serves as another example on the way visual communications are going.

For a creative 2017!

Hope you will have a nice Xmas holidays, and we hope to see you in 2017 with renewed strength and creative ideas. We will organize more UN Designers & Visual Communicators lunches in Geneva and plan to carry on this e-newsletter during the year so, if you have any work / campaign or ideas to share, or want to be part of the organizing team, please do not hesitate to write us at
