A set of Terms and Conditions Relevant to Design Work

Posted · Category: Legal

Every design project is different and the best will result from trust between the client and the designer. The most effective way to assure trust meets both client and designer expectations in an engagement is to codify the relationship with a written agreement.

AIGA has shared Standard Form of Agreement for Design Services with us. The standard agreement is adaptable to unique circumstances while still drawing from the best proven practices based on mutual respect and clarity. It is a modular approach that recognizes the different needs and requirements of different types of engagements.

The Basics & Essentials of Graphic Design Contracts

Posted · Category: Legal

If you’re a freelance graphic designer and do not have contracts or standard terms and conditions that you provide your clients to sign prior to starting a project. You will at some point need it to protect your business. We have mentioned “Freelance Design Contracts for Web Designers” few days ago.

Now TheDesignCubicle has published an article of “What to Include In Your Design Contracts“, which listed the basics and essentials to include in your standard graphic design terms and conditions or contracts. You may find it useful on building your own design contracts as well. However, the guidelines are only a starting point and should be included in every design contract. They should be adapted over time, modified as needed and specific to each designer.
