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.
The graphic design terms and conditions document contains the following provisions:
Definitions and interpretation
Assignment / licence of rights
Moral rights waiver
