Website design brief – free template – If you’re reading this the chances are that you’ve been tasked with drawing up a brief or a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a new website or redesign. Often the hardest part is getting started, so to make life easier we’ve created a website design brief template. It contains all the questions a web design agency will need in order to come back to you with a strong proposal and an accurate quote.
Getting your brief right – why it matters
Investing time to get the brief right from the outset will save you time in the long run; it will help you to consolidate your requirements and priorities. The aim is to elicit an effective response to the brief and therefore a website that meets all your objectives.
Being clear on what you’re looking for is key; the more detail and clarity in the brief, the easier it is for respondents and for those making the final supplier selection.
First things first
The web design company will need to know a bit about your company to get a feel for how they should design your website; include a couple of paragraphs about your business, your history, your clients, your size and growth ambitions.
Free website design brief template
We’ve designed the template to be as comprehensive as possible and it’s broken down into sections for ease. If you have an existing website, be sure to include the URL and explain why it’s no longer suitable.
The website should be an extension of any offline media, advertising or branding that you have, so it’s advisable to provide any marketing material and links to any social media platforms to help the agency get a feel for your company.
