We have been working with intergovernmental organisations for many years and have gained invaluable experience delivering multi-lingual design solutions. We regularly produce English, French and Spanish versions of reports, magazines and educational material, together with other European languages as required.


For a recent report summary for OECD, Paris, we designed and typeset ten language versions including Japanese, Chinese, Korean and Russian.



Baseline designed and project-managed the production of the first two World Water Development Reports – two 600-page publications with interactive CD-ROM. Working closely with the editor-in-chief and the WWAP editorial production team, all graphs, flow diagrams and schematics were re-drawn to establish graphic consistency, images sourced and enhanced for print, and pages laid out, proofed and amended to final production and delivery, within tight deadlines and on budget.


Attention to detail and good communication skills enable successful working relationships with key personnel within UNESCO. A standard we have met consistently when working on susequent publishing projects with other editorial and production teams in Paris, including the UNESCO Courier, a prestigious quarterly magazine, designed and laid out by us in English, French and Spanish. We provide working templates for their designers to work in other languages.




The Organisation of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) is an international economic organisation of 34 countries founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress and world trade. Based in Paris, it is a forum of countries committed to democracy and the market economy, providing a platform to compare policy experiences, seek answers to common problems, identify good practices, and co-ordinate domestic and international policies of its members.


Baseline has designed and produced numerous, high-profile publications for them, transforming complex economic data into accessible visual information, often in several languages, aimed at ministerial-level conferences. Attention to detail is essential, as is the broadening of comprehension through efficient typography, iconography and clean page layouts. 



UN Volunteers

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) program is a UN  organisation that advocates the role and benefits of volunteerism for development, integrates volunteers into development programmes, and mobilises volunteers for development projects. UN Volunteers help to organise and run local and national elections and support a large number of peacekeeping and humanitarian projects. UN Volunteers comprise one third of all international civilians working in UN peacekeeping operations.


Baseline was selected from an international tendering process to provide graphic design services for annual reports, awareness campaigns and  visual collateral for conferences and exhibitions.


Working closely with their editorial team in Bonn and their printers in Copenhagen, we have designed and produced  high-quality graphic solutions for a wide range of celebratory and practical print and web-based requirements.



The Red Cross

Baseline was commissioned by the International Committee of the Red Cross and Crescent, based in Geneva, to re-design their flagship magazine, RCRC. Published in numerous languages and distributed worldwide, the magazine is a vital tool for informing its global readership of the successes of, and challenges to the organisation's activities in the world's conflict zones.


Being aware of the diversity of languages and cultures of its audience, we took a highly-visual approach and blended it with a simple, yet engaging, page structure which has been extremely well received by its target market. We deisgned and produced the first issue and supplied detailed templates and typographic sepecifications which have facilitated ease of duplication and a consistent visual identity across the cultural spectrum.
