Non profit graphic design allows for freedom of expression and it brings great results to the company requesting the artwork. It is an industry with high standards even though they donate their time as well as sometimes asking a lower rate. The lower rate is often simply for organizations who do not quite qualify as non profit.
This and any donations for work done, is ploughed back into your company and continues to service other organizations. This might also include the training of more designers.
When designing products for this type of artwork the same principles apply as for any other company. There has to be a clear and well outlined brief for the designer to follow. It must be set out fully and as realistic as possible. It should be done in such a way that they artists knows almost immediately which direction to take. This will also give the designer the time to work up more than one design to present.
The designer must also make sure that he or she understands the brief clearly before starting to work on it so that no time is wasted. The time for reviews should be limited so that there is enough room to make small changes and not to be too far off the mark (or not at all). The brief has to be as clear as well so that there is no room for any error.
The client has a clear understanding of what they would like to put out there and this has to be sketched out clearly in the brief. It will allow the artist to present a comprehensive and relevant message for the company.
This type of art created is also not limited to the outcomes, but there are also organizations which provide training for prospective designers. The training of these designers has to be of good quality as well so they may benefit from becoming mainstream in the end.
