The Design Process: Terms and Agreement

Once we’ve determined the objectives, timeframes, and value of the project, we will establish the terms of our working relationship. This is typically a written contract stating that both parties understand their respective responsibilities to the successful completion of the project. On occasion, the scope of a project may change based upon your needs, your clients’ needs, unforeseen obstacles or new possibilities. A good contract provides contingencies and routine evaluation periods that foster the communication and creativity necessary to accommodate any emerging developments. The contract also addresses all legal obligations and responsibilities in respect to ‘best business practices’, and concerns such as copywright law and intellectual property.
