- What do they think of your brand?
- Who are your competitors and what makes you different from them?

Define what your project is about.
This section of the brief should contain clear information regarding the scope of your project. Whether the project is for brand merchandising, a webpage, or even a social media ad, a properly defined scope is essential. Answering some of the questions below could help you with your brief.
- Are there any specific emotions you want to evoke with your design?
- What problem will you want your design to solve?
- Where will your design be seen? (corporate, print, social media, etc.)
- Is there copy you want to include within your design? (titles, subtitles, taglines, etc.)
- What are the dimensions and format you want your designs to be in?

Provide design references or relevant materials.
Your brief should contain examples of images that inspired your design and details regarding colours and font types that you would prefer. You can also include any or all the following for a clearer brief.

- Provide links to inspirational sources that has a similar concept to what you are looking for

Once you have filled in your request submission, you can add it to your project queue.
