The Government Information Center (GIC) is taking requests from State Agencies via their Public Information Officers (PIOs) to create digital and print graphics as well as high quality video.
At the GIC, our mission is to connect citizens to their government, so we are excited to grow our capabilities with video and graphics to better inform the public. Video is a fast growing segment for consuming information. Graphics can take complex information and make it immediately understandable. Another goal is to help reduce friction between government and citizens, and to help agencies communicate more effectively with the public.
We are only accepting briefs and requests from PIOs, so please reach out to your agency PIO to find out more details. If you are a PIO, and need more information, please contact us to learn about our request process. Remember, projects must have an intended audience of the public (not just internal-facing), and we ask for sufficient lead time so we do not rush the creative process.
Below is a list of projects recently completed by our Creative Team.
Images and Graphics for Social Media – GIC runs the Delaware.gov Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube channels. Our goals on these platforms is to celebrate Delaware, inform the public, encourage residents to explore Delaware, promote healthy living, and more. We also want our look and feel to be consistent across our platforms, so we developed elements that you can find throughout our graphics; see if you can find them all!
Child Abuse Prevention Month 2019 Campaign Graphics for the Department of Services for Children, Youth and their Families – April is Child Abuse Prevention Month, and we were engaged to create social media graphics about this serious and heartbreaking issue. A goal was to promote the 24/7 hotline phone number and website, and to encourage people to report if they suspect child abuse.
Tobacco 21 Bill Graphics for The Office of the Governor and Department of Health and Social Services – The Delaware Legislature was considering a bill to raise the tobacco purchasing age from 18 to 21, and we were engaged to create a social media graphics campaign to talk about the true costs to Delaware’s health, budget, and well-being related to tobacco.
Delaware Opportunity Zones Map PDF re-imagining for Division of Small Business – We were engaged to help lift an existing highly accurate GIS map and add a creative touch, while still maintaining the integrity of the boundary lines and pop outs. This graphic was used in a print publication, and is used on the Division’s website. Delaware may have one of the best Opportunity Zone maps in the country now!
