design brief template

The template is a step by step guide to completing this part of your coursework.

Before you start...

Choose a project that you find interesting, as you will be working on it for a long time. A Design Brief is a statement of what you are going to make, Who are you going to make it for, and why it is needed.

Next you will be asked to analyse the brief ‘Brief Analysis’

This can be done by using a mindmap, to help you think about the brief from different perspectives.
