4 Three Pitfalls to Avoid We suggest that brief writers avoid the following three pitfalls when writing briefs: 1. Content distribution: First, brief writers often undervalue the importance of communicating strategy (philosophy, structure, and innovation) with their team members. We suggest that the content about function occupies at least 5 percent and that the content about expression occupies at least 25 percent in the design brief. 2. When they include too little content about expression (<25 percent), they may ask team members to explore extensively, which results in a high risk of going over budget.

As concept development reflects only 5 percent of development costs, yet influences 70 percent of the final product's cost (Andreasen & Hein, 2000), using a design brief to translate management criteria into measurable and actionable design concepts is critical. As such, most design briefs are the writer's interpretation of a request for proposals (RFP) or merely a reformulation of an existing business plan (Petersen, 2011). Unfortunately, these basic elements provided no insight into how to write a high-quality design brief.
