A series of detailed illustrations communicating people-centric themes

Theme illustrations

New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO

We were asked to create a set of illustrations that convey who the New Zealand National Commission for UNESCO are and what they do, in particular their five key areas of work.

We developed a series of illustrations in a paper collage style which convey these key concepts in a simple and meaningful way. The illustrations visually represent UNESCO’s aim of building a culture of peace through work in the areas of education, natural science, social sciences, culture, communication and information.

We worked closely with UNESCO to ensure that the illustrations reflected their goals and work in five key areas, and had a distinctly New Zealand feel.

The illustrations depict the opportunities UNESCO creates for people to gather together – individuals, organisations, programmes and initiatives, locally, nationally and internationally – as part of their work, providing space and time to ‘build peace through dialogue’.

The illustrations are being used by UNESCO on social media, brochures and reports, pull-up banners and web banners.

Wonderful words from the client:
“We had a challenging task for Gusto – to create generic illustrations that reflect who we are and what we do. This project had a tight timeframe and required us to work closely with the designer, but we found her to be very responsive to our feedback and quick to make the required changes. We are delighted with the final result, which adds vibrancy and visual interest to our comms collateral.”
