About this contract for architectural, fashion or industrial design

This is a straight forward contract for any design work in any industry. It is written for the client to initiate and stay in control. It is intended to make sure you, the client, get what you have paid for. It provides for an assignment to you of all created work.

It does not include a specification of work. That is assumed to be set out in detail in a schedule.

The person you use is an individual who is a design expert (you hope!) in his field. He is self employed.

Because the work you want done is intellectual property it is subject to law that does not apply if you want your car serviced or your accounts drawn. We cover all the relevant matters for you.

Your designer will work on or off your premises. He may used staff besides himself.

You may want to use the designer more than once (this is an “umbrella” agreement).

Your designer may not be in your country.

We have assumed you are in business through a company but the contract can be easily edited if you are an individual or partnership.

    Steadfast Building Services
  • "I liked the document and am a big supporter of templates and independence from solicitors where possible. There are many things we can do ourselves with pro forma templates such as those from your company. The key is to know when to get professional advice and when to go alone. I'll keep an eye for future opportunities to do business with you."
