UNIT 4
Designing to a brief

OUTCOME 1
The brief
ASSESSMENT TASK
Prepare
one brief that decribes a client's
communication need and specifies
possible resolutions, and proposes
two distinct final visual
communication presentations
suitable for a stated audience/s

BACK

Specific requirements

c   The brief is prepared in consultation with
a real or fictitious person. If a real client is
involved and restrictions are imposed which
may prevent the student meeting specific
criteria,
the teacher should ensure that
these restrictions are overcome
.

c   No format is prescribed for the brief .....
Formats that may be used to write the brief
include:
- a description of the content of the brief
 organised under sub-headings
- a letter of request
- a structure that presents the brief in dot points  

.....
however

c   the brief should refer to one client and
two distinctly different final presentations
of visual communication

c   Each of the final visual communication
presentations should be discernibly different in
presentation, format and intent.
The difference between the two final presentations
should be clearly evident in the description of each
piece of visual communication
in the brief.

c   Presentation formats should be numbered
'
Presentation format 1' and 'Presentation format 2'
in the brief.
Where they are not numbered the first
presentation format listed should be assumed to be
'Presentation format 1'
in any list of formats in the
brief.
Note that if more than two presentation formats are
listed in the brief, then only the first two should be
identified as 'Presentation format 1' and
'Presentation format 2'.

c   The brief is not required to be within a specific
word range. Teachers are advised that the word range
that would be sufficient to cover the requirements of
Outcome 1 is between 200 and 400 words.
