  • The brief can make or break a project. Define the problem and define your goals - creatives essentially are problem solvers. Being creative is not something that magically happens—it's a process. If you provide better details — you'll generally receive better solutions to your problem.
  • Unless you want something very specific, don't limitby describing specific imagery/concepts in your project brief. While you may have a vision, you could be missing out on many other terrific concepts, one of which may be perfect for you!
  • The value you set will reflect the quality of the work.
  • Don't get caught up in details before they become relevant. When your project is for logo design, for example, do not get caught up in colors - creatives can easily customize colors to your liking within seconds, but a design takes a lot of hard work and brainstorming. Color iterations can be discussed in the post-project wrap-up after you pick the winning design. Focus on the details that are most relevant.
  • You make the decision — not the faceless crowd, not the current trends, not even your 2-3 most trusted advisors. Listen to the input, absolutely; do your homework, definitely. In the end though, you decide.
