RTI (www.rti.org) is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to conducting innovative, multidisciplinary research that improves the human condition. With a worldwide staff of more than 5,000 people, RTI offers innovative research and development and multidisciplinary services.
RTI International in collaboration with Plan International and other partners is implementing a 4-year USAID funded Effective Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (E-WASH) project. E-WASH will provide technical assistance to state governments to improve urban water service delivery by strengthening the governance, financial, and technical viability of six (6) state water boards (SWBs) in Nigeria. This is part of the United States Government’s (USG) efforts working with the Federal Government to address the heart of the challenges faced by the urban water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) services. The overall goal is improvement of urban water and sanitation service delivery.
As part of the demand to manage and coordinate all EWASH project communications and visibility requirements, there is an urgent need to begin the process of putting in place mechanisms for video production and graphic designs that would aid our knowledge management and sharing with third parties. Short video documentaries are some of KM products that need to be disseminated to target counterparts and key stakeholders especially at State level to support the implementation of EWASH learning agenda (internal and external audiences).
To achieve this, USAID E-WASH requires the services of a GRAPHIC DESIGNER that will provide hands-on support to the Senior Communications and Knowledge Management Specialist that will assist in formatting newsletters, factsheets and other KM materials that will be disseminated. In addition, the person will also design graphics that are compliant with E-WASH branding and marking requirements for production and dissemination. It is anticipated that the graphic designer will support the process of planning, analysis and design of a visual answer to E-WASH communication problems.
The USAID E-WASH program seeks a graphic designer consultant who can support the design and development of associated learning products by generating visual representations of baseline survey (studies) outcomes infographics collated via feedbacks from beneficiaries and field respondents. The graphic designer consultant will also be expected to contribute their creative skills to the idea generation process under the supervision of the Senior Media and Communications (M&C) Specialist.
The graphic designer will collaborate predominantly with members of USAID E-WASH MEL team to generate visual representations of ideas to include illustrations as well as captioned data visualization products to highlight existing trends and portray systemic patterns. These visual representations will be refined through an iterative and consultative process, with the possibility of new ideas emerging throughout the period of consultancy.
