Write a Design Contract that Gets You Paid

By ·Artist, Creative Director, Spacial Designer

  • In this course you'll learn how to write a graphic design contract.
  • Prepare by identifing items you think should be addressed in a graphic design contract. Make a list. Bring it to class.
  • We'll work together to write a contract that addresses a broad client base and includes all possible scenarios.
  • At the end of the course, you will leave with a well conceived and well written contract that you will be able to adjust to fit most any design job you undertake.
You'll need a computer and a text writing program. I prefer MS Word, but as long as your program can make bulleted items and outlines, we're good to go.
