The purpose of this document is to provide the user with the basic vocabulary needed to develop design projects as well as a checklist of the key elements necessary to complete a project. It will also provide a guide to the ethics and protocol of design and content sourcing which will include the issues of copyright restrictions and giving due credit.

While this guide aims to cover the core aspects of the design process, it is not intended to be used as a complete ‘how to’ guide. The subject is too massive to be adequately explored in this document. However, links have been provided to free online resources that will give the user further access to information.

The guide deals with topics individually and can be used as a reference manual rather than being read from cover to cover. The document also contains a glossary of terms which provides important explanations to the language used throughout.
