The best way to submit a design request (and the best way to ensure you get the design you want) is through the secure Client Portal.
Once you login, click “Design Request” in the left navigation menu.
Fill out the Design Request form with as much information as you can. Bragg Media’s designers are only as good as the information we receive.
Here are some best practices for submitting a design request:
Name of Request
Use a specific descriptive of the project. For example, “Mother’s Day Facebook Post,” “Hamburger Rack Card,” “LinkedIn Retargeting Ad,” “Event Flier for Vegan Festival.”
If the design project has specific dimensions, this is where you can let us know. 8.5×11 inch flier? 11×17 inch poster? 24×26 inch poster? If this design piece will be produced by a professional printer, be sure to include the details of the bleed and any other requirements the printer has in this field.
If you need a graphic for a social media post, no need to let us know the file size — a simple description of “Facebook post,” “Instagram post,” etc. is all you need.
Enter any instructions for the designer. This is your opportunity to let the designer know what you have in mind and what is important about this design project.
Be as specific as possible. Remember: there is no such thing as too much information.
What kind of fonts do you like? Scripty? Formal? Handwritten?
What kind of design would be appropriate? Fun? Serious? Clean? Lots of color?
Need stock images? What kind?
Content for Design Project
Enter the specific copy you’d like to use in your design project — such as headlines, subheads, captions, taglines, terms and conditions, etc.
We like to keep this field separate so that there isn’t any confusion on what the wording should be for your design project.
Need a little help crafting the content for your campaign? Check out the design resources in your portal. The Creative Work Plan is an excellent workbook for planning marketing campaigns and design projects.
Who will be seeing your design project? Who is your ideal customer?
This information helps the designer create the project in a way that will best resonate with your target market audience. For instance, people over 65 don’t want to take their glasses off to read the type. Design materials meant for parents of small children should evoke a sense of trust.
What are you not looking for?
Knowing what you don’t want is just as important as knowing what you do want. Is there a color you abhor? A font that you just can’t stand?
Even if it’s a general feeling or look that you want to avoid, let us know!
Upload examples you like
Have you seen an ad, flier, poster or a social media meme that would be perfect for this design project? If you have some screenshots or other files of design that you like, upload those files here.
What do you like about the examples you provided us? Even if you only like one aspect of a design piece — such as a starburst or infobox — this is where you can let us know.
Important Notes: Bragg Media’s designers won’t blatantly copy another brand’s design. We’ll use it as inspiration for your unique piece.
Bragg Media has access to copyright free stock images. Let us know if you need any.
Need the native design files? No problem!
Choose between a transparent .png, a standard .pdf, .jpg, a PhotoShop file (.PSD), InDesign files (.INDD), Illustrator file (.AI).
We also can use your Canva account as well.
Upload any files necessary for the project
This is where you can upload any of your own photos, logos or other important design elements for the project. If your fundraiser flier needs sponsor logos, upload them here!
How should we use your media assets?
Some organizations have strict guidelines on how to place a logo within a design project. This is a good place to describe in detail how you’d like to see your media assets used in this project.
