I want a REAL WORKING documentation. Put down all ideas, logo designs etc, emails from clients etc, costings, research, screen grabs.
Think about the presentation of your work.. ANY CDs or DVDs that are handed in with scribble rushed writing, no cover etc will be thrown in the bin and not marked! Presentation is VITAL. Clients expect this. Looks professional.
