Designers and clients create creative briefs (also called design briefs) during their early interactions. By referring back to these documents throughout the course of a project, stakeholders can recognize milestones and achievements. Creative briefs keep teams on track, maintain project focus, and avoid the ever-present temptation of “mission creep.”

A creative brief offers all the information about a project at a glance. To master the art of writing creative briefs, create a balance between two factors:
Packaging matters – no matter what template you decide to use, be sure to specify all design, deliverable, cost, and deadline information in your creative brief.
Clear communication can resolve all kinds of expensive issues before they arise. Make sure you and your contractors are on the same page and enjoy a smooth and drama-free collaboration!
