Visual communication like film and posters can be powerful tools for sharing information and fostering trust in service providers. Yet color, iconography, symbols and images are not universal. Understanding how to communicate beyond printed words ensures that humanitarians can effectively support the people they serve. This session will explore a range of formats and styles used to create effective media formats/visual communications which are high quality, inclusive and engaging.
