Design Contract Templates

A Design Contract is a written document that shows the agreement between a designer and the client. When a client wants to hire a graphic designer to create their company or brand logo, signage or a company website, they enter into an agreement and sign a Design Contract. This contract will give design style instructions, establish a timeframe for the design to be ready, and outline the terms and the mode of payment. This will help in keeping the designer on track to meet their work timeframe and minimize miscommunication. This contract is also important to both the designer and the clients especially in a case where they disagree of things; the contract makes it easier for them to solve the issue. This article will outline the Design Contract key elements for both parties.

Identification of the Parties:

The first step of writing a Design Contract is to identify the parties involved, the designer and the client. The agreement will then specifically identify each party. Show the date, month and the year of the agreement. If the contract is between a person and a company, then physical transactions involve a representative of the business then the relationship manager of that particular company will assume the legal role of the client for the purpose of the transaction records. The legal status of each person involved in the transaction is outlined in writing along with any other relevant information, such as the phone numbers and address of each party involved. It is advisable to relate names to legal identification documents (passport number, identification card number or driving license) because names can be similar.

Service Description:

This will give a detailed description of the services that the client will receive from the designer. For example if the design is supposed to design a website for the company, it will be indicated here, and the terms the two parties have agreed on.

Payment:

This section of the Design Contract will show the agreed prize and the mode of payment. And if the two parties agreed on down payment, then it will be indicated on this section. If the designer has any additional charges for editing then it should also be included on this part of the Design Contract.

Terms:

This will show the duration for the contract which should be the same as the agreed timeframe for the completion of the project upon which the Design Contract will be terminated automatically.

Work / Product Ownership:

The contracts will indicate the product ownership right, where the client is always entitled to the product ownership. The Design Contract should clearly state that any work done is for client and it is exclusively owned by the client. This is done to avoid fraud and limit the designer from claiming ownership of the designing work after completion.

Reproduction of the Product:

This is the final part of the Design Contract where the two parties agree upon the final completion of the design and all the outstanding balance owed to the designer are paid. The client will be granted full and unlimited reproduction rights to the design.
