If you have had to work with corporate branding and templates...
I am tasked with refreshing our corporate eLearning template and guides. These are supplied to contractors who build courses for us after we do the instructional design. They may also do the whole project start to finish.
My question is, as developers, what are some of the absolute must-have pieces of information you need in order to work successfully with a client, and equally as important, the PLEASE DON'T's. What are you asking for, what do you regularly have to clarify, what irritates you about client templates?
So far I have:
- a style sheet for typography
- our colour palette RGB codes
- the full corporate branding manual
- logos and other brand image files in .png format
- concept and storyboard templates
- a breakdown of our tech set up.
I didn't intend on making specific slide layouts, but if that is helpful, I can just make the ones that matter most. I am also going to meet with our brand team to discuss how digital learning fits in the grand scheme of things, as the huge brand manual is very much print/website focused.
Any feedback is much appreciated.
