- Format: Specify the format you need for your design, whether it’s for web, print, social media, or any other medium.
- Use Case: Clearly describe the purpose and context of the design. Explain where and how it will be used, such as for a website header, social media post, or print brochure.

- Orientation: Indicate whether the design should be in portrait, landscape, square, or another orientation.
- Color Scheme: Share your preferred color palette or any existing brand colors that should be incorporated.
- Typography: Specify the font styles and sizes you prefer for text elements within the design.
