Refugee and Migrant Children in Greece
Unicef invited us to design a booklet with infographics in two languages, Greek and English. The number of children moving across international borders – more and more of them on their own – is skyrocketing. In Europe alone, the number of children seeking asylum multiplied almost 10-fold between 2008 and 2016, while the share of children among asylum seekers grew from one in five to one in three. As of 2015, 31 million children were living outside their country of birth. Since the same year, a large number of uprooted children have also been crossing the Greek borders, driven by hunger, conflict, violence and severe poverty.
For the design we used simply icons and charts, in one main blue and 3 lighter blue colours. The only difference between the two languages was the front and back cover, we had the (so lovely) girl for Greek and the (also lovely) boy for the English version. All photos came from the organisation's photo data base.
