The Irish Refugee Council (IRC) is Ireland’s only national non-governmental organisation which specialises in working with and for refugees in Ireland. The main focus of their work is with people in the asylum system who are applying to be recognised as refugees. For almost 20 years, The Irish Refugee Council (IRC) have observed the changes that have been made in response to the arrival of refugees in Ireland.Based on extensive experience working directly with those affected, The Irish Refugee Council (IRC) have seen the huge financial cost of a failed system and the untold damage that has and is being done to men, women and children in the asylum process. The IRC is committed to promoting an asylum system that will be beneficial for refugees, the decision-maker, and the tax payer.
The Irish Refugee Council (IRC) requested us to design an infographic style tri-fold flyer displaying their 2016 Impact Report. This colourful impact report highlights the growing diversity of Ireland’s refugee community. AKGraphics decided to base the design of the infographics around the different countries/continents people are coming from to gain refuge in Ireland. Each sector of information is part of a different piece of land or island. A dotted line then connects each sector/island, cementing the notion of support.
Professional info-graphic design is a visual representation of information or data, it can easily simplify a complicated subject or turn data/ facts into a captivating experience. Infographics are a visually compelling communication medium that can communicate complex data in a visual format. The infographic was printed as a tri-fold flyer, it was also used as a digital PDF as part of a link on The Irish Refugee Council’s website here.
Our AKGraphics team of talented designers can create just about anything you can imagine, just call or email us as we are always available for a chat.
A lovely note from Caroline Reid, Communications Officer with the Irish Refugee Council in relation to this project.
“Working with AKGraphics was an easy, informative and efficient experience. We had a really tight timeframe for the turnaround of our 2016 Impact Report and the team did an incredible job facilitating us with such short notice, and many amendments. The report itself received a really positive response from both our members and supporters and we would definitely work with AKGraphics again in the future. We would also like to acknowledge the teams flexibility and patience throughout. ”
