Success criteria design brief
All IE design projects begin with a success criteria design brief. Its purpose is fourfold:
- To show that we’ve thoroughly understood the brief
- To ensure agency and client are in sync and understand what is required
- To create a set of realistic, objective, quantifiable criteria, which all parties can measure the final presented solution against
- To remove as much subjectivity as possible from the design process.
We ask all of our clients to physically sign the success criteria – including any hidden veto holders – to invest everyone in the success of the final solution.
This document then becomes a critical tool in making sure the identity achieves its aim. And whenever our designers present internal concepts, they have to demonstrate its adherence to the Success Criteria.
Beautiful won’t cut it. We may be in a room full of great designers where beautiful is a given – but effectiveness is where the real value lies.
Brand guidelines and templates
All IE Brand visual identity projects end with the creation of a comprehensive brand guidelines document, and set of templates to enable clients to be autonomous moving forwards.
We also offer clients the opportunity to use our Content Creation System to generate their own artwork.
