As part of our global efforts in digital peacebuilding, Search is developing training for digital community stewards on techniques for improving social cohesion in online spaces.
Description of the Assignment

      • A participant booklet will include pictures and infographics related to the training topics. The anticipated length is 50-55 pages, including the title page and table of contents.

The designer will be provided with drafts of these materials, which will include some sample images.

Many of the same images and infographics will be used in the participant booklet, PowerPoint slides, and facilitator’s guide.

The designer should use a cohesive style for all of these training materials and should work within the instruction on color palette, typefaces, logo usages, etc., from the organization’s Brand and Style guidelines. The designer will work directly with the team that developed the content for the training for direction and feedback and should be prepared to make multiple rounds of revisions.
