About the Projects
We are seeking a creative partner to work on two distinct projects. Agencies are invited to apply to one or both.
Project A: Custom “Leave Behind” Collateral
- Summary: Women’s World Banking is seeking the design and fabrication of a non-traditional promotional item that communicates our unique value proposition to potential partners and funders.
- Preferred Qualifications: Creative agency must have experience in brand development as well as design and fabrication of distinct, unique, cost-effective promotional items. This will be a small-batch production, intended for a targeted audience. We value the agency’s ability to concretize the abstract and offer an array of atypical and surprising options.
- Duration of Consultancy: Two-month engagement from project start (ASAP)
Project B: Suite of Creative Materials
Summary: Women’s World Banking is seeking a creative partner to plan, design and produce a suite of materials, including in-person display design that communicate key insights around four areas of expertise. The intention of these materials is to educate and inspire key stakeholders operating in the financial inclusion space. These materials, sharing a cohesive look and feel, must be designed with two different dissemination approaches in mind: 1) an in-person, interactive experience that displays these digital and print materials in a booth-style conference setting; and 2) online dissemination (website and social media) with download-ready print materials.
The suite of materials will include:
- Up to five animations
- Up to five infographics
- Up to six print-friendly designed materials
Preferred Qualifications: Creative agency must have expertise in creative storytelling through print and digital platforms, as well as experiential design, owning all the capabilities relevant for the core content pieces as described above.
Duration: Five-month engagement to be completed by October 1, 2017
Objectives & Responsibilities
The creative partner will deliver a timeline for execution that includes all major milestones throughout the duration of the project, including but not limited to content brainstorm and planning, style samples/wireframe, storyboarding, design rounds, development, and experiential display production (team may be asked to travel to international event for display construction). We expect the agency to be successful project managers and apprise us of any issues or budget concerns before they become a problem. We are a nonprofit working at the cutting edge of gender, technology and financial inclusion, so please provide work samples consistent with this identity.
