Kiss Me I'm Polish LLC

Water for People


As a global nonprofit supporting long-lasting access to water resources and sanitation facilities, Water for People is not your typical humanitarian organization. They believe everyone should have safe water, every day. And they want to help people all over the world reach that goal – every family, every clinic and every school – by treating the people they’re trying to help as partners instead of beneficiaries. This may seem like a simple idea but it is this core mission that makes Water for People different from so many other NGO’s out there. Working in 11 countries in Asia, Africa, Central America, and South America, Water for People brings together local entrepreneurs, civil society, governments, and communities to establish creative, collaborative solutions that allow people to build and maintain their own reliable safe water systems. In order to help Water for People communicate their unique mission and innovative approach to tackling this urgent crisis, Kiss Me I’m Polish worked closely with the organization to develop a comprehensive set of presentation materials which included a customizable, modular slide deck along with a 3-minute video animation. Inspired by the custom elements in the Water for People logo – part water drops, part human figures – we developed an extensive library of illustrations (including characters, icons and vignettes) for use throughout the various materials, along with an expanded color palette and set of visual motifs that built upon the organization’s existing identity. However our role went far deeper than just the visual design. From conceptualizing and storyboarding the animation, to organizing the content and structuring the slide deck, to animation and sound design – our team was fully engaged in the entirety of the creative and production process, from start to finish.

Working with the Kiss Me I'm Polish team has been a wonderful experience. Our image and messaging has been transformed as a result to great effect. It is rare to find a team who has such creative and innovative depth, and who push the edges of new design and creativity. We can give them any assignment and they will execute the project with perfect precision every time.”
