Call for Price Offers - Visual Consultancy 



Visual Consultancy


1. Background 

In 2019 forumZFD ISR/PAL programme in partnership with the Palestinian organization 7amleh- The Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media has initiated the project “Communicating Palestine”. The objective of the project is to create a guideline that organizations and media makers can use when they communicate the Palestinian context to international audiences. This guideline will: 

1. analyze which narratives are harmful and should be avoided 

2. present research on how Palestinians themselves would like to be represented and introduce creative and participatory approaches to storytelling 

3. address the main challenges that communicators have when they communicate about Palestine 

With the guideline forumzfd and 7amleh hope to support diplomatic missions, UN agencies, INGO as well as freelance journalists and media producers who wish to effectively convey the Palestinian context locally and internationally.


2. Tasks and responsibilities 

In order to achieve the envisioned objective, the Consultant(s) under the overall supervision of Communicating Palestine team will have the following major responsibilities and tasks: 

Create a visual corporate identity for the project (fonts, simple logo, colours etc.) 

Review guideline draft together with the consultants and proactively provide ideas for infographics, data visualizations, graphs, illustrations 

Develop these infographics, data visualizations, graphs, illustrations etc. in close coordination with the team 

Coordinate the development of these visuals with the entire team 

Create visuals (flyers, poster, social media postings) and other promotional material for the project 

Layout the entire guideline (between 150-200 pages) in different formats (for printing, interactive PDF and others) 

Develop animations for digital promotional material 

Support the visual development of a mini-website to accompany the project 


This is an ongoing project with many challenges for visual consultants. We understand that one single applicant may not be able to do illustrations, animation and layouting all at the same time. Therefore we also encourage agencies, teams or individuals with strong skills in one of the required fields to apply! 

The guideline is still in the drafting. At the moment we estimate that it will have around 150-200 pages. A detailed ToR will be provided to successful applicants after assessing the skills and needs of the project together.
