Communication and Transparency
For any relationship to work, good communication and transparency are important. The meaningful design projects tend to stem from a clear brief. Discussing requirements and expectations before the project commences is a good way to prevent unexpected hurdles.
Why not try to follow this ‘how to‘ if you’re having trouble writing your brief.
You are likely to talk to the design team face-to-face, on the phone and on email. Ensure your feedback is always clear and well thought out. We can’t read minds so if there is a goal you a trying to reach or a deadline you need to hit – tell us. If you have a burning question – ask it! It may reveal critical information and put the project on a new path. It doesn’t hurt to ask.
