The design brief
When you start the work with your graphic designer, the first thing that is necessary is that you understand what your requirements are! Once you know your goals properly it will be easier for you to communicate with the graphic designer.
For this you can tell them verbally or use something that has been used by you earlier. And do not hesitate to ask them any questions if you have any query.
Let them know your taste and also mention if there is something in their work that is not liked by you. It is better to communicate things clearly in the beginning instead of changing things when the designs are almost complete.
Also ask your designer about their requirement from you. Do they need to understand your past and have some knowledge about your background information? The better they know your concern, better will be their understanding about your concern.
If you already have an established brand, do let your designer know about it, so that they do not create something totally different.
The work process
After you have informed your designer about your requirement and supplied them with necessary data they will start their work. They will make mock ups that are rough sketches of how they want to proceed. Once done they will show you the work.
These mockups will give your idea about how the finished work will look like and you can also check the colors used in the work. Obviously they will not show you the doodles that they design as that is their part of work.
Now it’s time to comment on the work. If you like the designs, it’s great! If not then let the designer know what changes you want. Do you want some simple changes or want some major change in the designs.
