Design brief template
Looking to produce a poster for your event? Or an infographic to communicate your impact?
Use this template to ensure your designer knows exactly what you require. Just fill in the form and add in your own branding.
Tips for using this template
- If you’re using the form for internal briefs, make sure your design team are happy this template asks for all the data they’ll need
- You could even create an automated version of the form – upload it to Typeform (or you’re preferred survey software) so the whole process can be done online. Check out Ciarán Ó’Carroll’s advice on how to do this from our Doing more with less seminar (slide 11 onwards)
