The briefs

  • What are brief sets?

    Brief sets are mini courses made up of multiple practice briefs within a single theme or discipline. These are broken up into the following sections: overview, creative direction, deliverables & timescales, our approach to the brief and a student showcase.

  • How will I stay motivated to complete the brief sets?

    We'll send you motivational progress reminders and updates when you complete stages so you'll know exactly how far to go!

  • What happens when I complete a brief set?

    When you complete a brief set, your dashboard (where you can see all of your progress) will update to show that you are 100% of the way through. You can go back and access any section of each brief at any time.

  • Can I use the briefs with my students?

    To use Briefbox with your students you’ll need an educators license available here. An educators plan includes free full access PRO accounts for your students and is an affordable way to add practical learning material to your course or syllabus.

  • Can I use work created on Briefbox in my portfolio?

    Absolutely! Running a design agency ourselves, we are always impressed by applicants who create conceptual work and use it in their portfolio.

  • How do I submit to briefs?

    We encourage our students to submit your work created to where we will feature and showcase students work over at the student showcase page, as well as on our social media channels.

  • How are the briefs written?

    Our team run a live design agency, alongside Briefbox, and the briefs we write are inspired by real client projects that we receive on a monthly basis. This offers a new and unique way of real style learning for aspiring designers.

  • Can I get feedback on my progress?

    Premium members can submit up to 2 projects a month for review and we will respond within 10 working days with feedback.
