project summary

anyone have a good example of what they receive for a project summary before you begin designing on a project? i work in a really small firm, and we communicate by word of mouth a lot. as a result, a lot slips through the cracks when we are busy. i’d like to propose the type of information i need on paper before beginning a project, but this is my first job and i’d like to see what other designers receive…

anyone?

…send me a pm and i will send you the xl template we use.
