UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, hope.
The Brand Team is the cornerstone upholding and evolving our brand standards globally. Our key outputs are brand systems, global brand activations and brand guidance. We work cross-functionally within the Global Division of Advocacy and Communication and with and for our colleagues around the world. There are design implications to how the UNICEF Brand shows up in its many forms — in print, in event spaces, social media, on the web and in country offices, humanitarian contexts, private fundraising country offices, National Committee Country Offices. In addition, the complex contexts in which we work, demands a rigour in how our Brand shows up within One UN, in partnership contexts, and in other sub-branded activities.
As part of our commitment to supporting the brand we will be finding new ways to support our brand around the world with the launch of our first digital first brand platform as well as rebranding key spaces in NYHQ. We have a unique opportunity to raise the bar in brand adoption worldwide, increasing trust and engagement with our brand from our audiences, contributing to an increase in our collective ability to deliver results for children.
