My first point of call on the net is to do the rounds on my fave design sites and one of them being designyoutrust.com.
Recently though they've been running ad's on it that are annoying to say the slightest.
God awful animations in the middle of the screen and audio ones that auto run in the background.
I know these sites need to make some revenue but these are SO annoying that I want to stop visiting it even though it has some great content.
I'm of to fromupnorth to sooth my nerves.

That would have been PERFECT mate! :)
I did but he'd go for my Magic Mouse but what I would do was keep touching my stylus to my Wacom to override the mouse and make it jump all over the screen much to my amusement.
He never knew why and would pick up the mouse to see what was wrong with it.
I got lots of pleasure out of that one.

I like the idea of you brief template Adam.
I might take that one onboard myself.
I try to educate clients as much as I can initially about the design process and then when I send concepts I try to be as descriptive as I can and tell them my reasons behind doing what I've done.
On the most part this works but with some that old saying "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink" is very true.
Then it inevitably ends up in that other saying "you can't polish a turd".

Just found this list of "Tactical Pens" which I thought may come in handy in event of mouse grabbing or screen touching.
Particularly like No. 8's description.

I agree with @scotty
I worked at an agency years ago and we worked on a schools brand ( http://www.mbc.qld.edu.au ) and whilst the overall branding was quite strong and good the actual logo mark was pretty typical, shield with very literal translation although its not one of the worst I've seen thats for sure.
I think schools are normally run by people who don't want to step to far away from what the norm is and sometimes they expect to see what everyone already has so tread carefully but good luck and hope you can do something amazing!
