Branding Brief Template

This branding brief template is the project resource that makes working with brand designers easy, quick and full of great results.

Brand design is one of the most important creative investments your business will ever make. A branding brief template can help you maximise the payoff from that investment.

So, how do you make sure you get the best out of a branding project?

The key is to be on the same page as the designer.

Literally. Have pages that you can both look at and agree on.

Those pages are known as a branding brief.

This branding brief template is the same one that I use with my clients to make sure their branding project runs on time, on budget and produces great results. Feel free to download and use it for your own branding design project!
