Creative Brief Template

The areas below are a thought provoking guide in delivering a creative brief to Mind
Methods. A creative brief clearly articulates (with the support of images, charts and videos as references), the project that
you are about to embark on.
This is a great tool to communicate your exact direction and expectations for the project. The more information you can
provide, the greater the chance that Mind Methods will produce marketing material (or campaigns and plans) that will
achieve your overall vision.
If you would like to further discuss how to approach the brief, then feel free to call us on +61 2 8003 4224.
