How to create a web design freelance contract.
Before you start work as a freelance web designer, you’ll need a service contract between you and the client. It doesn’t have to be complex, but there are some essential things to cover. The following important items should be included in most comprehensive design contracts for freelance web designers:
- A clear description of your client’s design parameters
- The number of pages you will create, plus the content
- Your project fees
- A description of any future site maintenance to be included
- Project payment delivery schedule
- A place for the client to sign and agree to your terms
