GRAPHIC DESIGN | Uns "Refugees in Berlin" Campaign

  • Objective
    Create a campaign to bring awareness to a social issue

    Solution
    Over 350,000 refugees entered the EU within the past year. Back in 2015 a large number of migrants poured through the German borders seeking refuge from wars in their own countries. Due to the cultural and language barrier, there is a clear separation within the groups as they lack the resources or knowledge of how to gather and get to know one another.

    Uns is a community building project directed at refugees and the natives of their host country. There are many organisations and projects out there targeting refugees in hopes to helping them integrate into the community. The current issue is that these organisations have a very weak web presence, and as a result, many people do not know these resources exist. My goal was to create a campaign that helps close the gap a little by promoting fun programs in which both locals and refugees can participate in together.

    The theme of the campaign would be grounded by the hashtag, #dumituns, meaning "you with us" in German and centers around the idea of inclusion and cross-cultural relationships.
  • For my first touchpoint, I designed an A2 size pamphlet that be folded and placed in shelters or hostels that refugees may live in. They can also be placed around cafes and restaurants so locals can come in contact with it too. ​​​​​​​
  • My second touchpoint is a set of postcards, sent my direct mail, to citizens around the city. The illustrations on the postcards mirror that of the pamphlet and acts as a personal invitation to the organisations' events.

    In the back of the postcard, the viewer will find meeting locations, dates, and additional information related to their respective organisations. For example, Uber den Tellerand's postcard features a recipe for a Syrian meatball dish.
