This graphic design contract template is designed for use by a graphic design business (or other business providing graphic design services) as its standard terms and conditions document for the provision of graphic design services.
It is suitable for use where services are being provided to businesses, rather than consumers.
The graphic design terms and conditions template contains two alternative intellectual property provisions. The first is a licence to use the designs; the second is an assignment of the intellectual property rights in designs. Under the assignment, the customer would become the owner of the design after work has been completed and all fees have been paid.
The template has been drafted to protect the interests of the designer rather than the customer.
A form of "specification of work" is also included. You can use this to record the customer-specific information relating to each contract. At a minimum, you should record information about the customer's identity, the services and/or deliverables to be supplied and the charges payable under the contract. In addition, you may wish to specify the term of the contract, a timetable for services provision, materials to be supplied by the client, and client contact details.
