Brand Guidelines Template

$49.00 USD

Level up your brand guidelines and help your client keep their brand consistent!

Sick of seeing clients butcher your newly designed brand? Maybe it’s time to start offering brand guidelines as part of your more premium brand packages. This template will help you deliver succinct, easy-to-follow guidelines to your branding clients.

Delivering comprehensive brand guidelines ensures:

  • You look professional
  • The brand you’ve designed is implemented properly across your client’s team. No more incorrect colours or weird logo spacing because the rules are all laid out clearly in black and white!

Don’t underestimate the value of providing full brand guidelines, either – they are incredibly valuable, and clients are generally happy to pay far more for them. Clients don’t want to destroy their branding after spending a bunch of money having it professionally designed. They want it to look consistent and professional, and detailed guidelines make this so much easier.

FAQs

Can I customise the design of the templates?

Yes! All the templates are set up with styles and master pages so they can be updated to your branding super quickly. You can watch this video to see how easy it is.

It depends on which template you purchase. Some are PDF guides. But most are editable InDesign, Affinity, Google Docs and Canva. We will soon be building our templates into Dubsado, too.

Are these templates written by a lawyer?

No, I am not a lawyer. I am a graphic designer and these are the templates I have developed in over 10 years of being in business. I do highly recommend getting your contract written by a lawyer, though. Foundd Legal do fantastic legal templates which I use in my business.

Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’m the admin geek who developed these templates over the last ten years in my graphic and web design biz.

I’ve been where you are. I spent years chasing my tail but knowing that if I just set my mind to it, my business life could be easier… could be better.

I’ve run my own graphic design business, Slinky Did It, for the last 10 years and have been lucky enough to score some big-name clients like the European Union and the ABC. But it wasn’t until I put some serious blood, sweat and tears into my design business systems, processes and communication that I actually started to reap the rewards of living the freelance dream!

I created Designer Admin to give other designers insider access to my project methodology and the shortcut I wish I had when setting up my systems and processes… the ability to plug and play someone else’s templates into my process!

So are you ready?
