Comprehensive Contract (Large Projects)

The Comprehensive Client Agreement provides a detailed set of Terms and Conditions for designers working on medium to large scale projects.


The Client Agreement is an important document to set and manage client expectations. Not only will these terms and conditions help to protect you from potential legal issues during the project, they are also a critical means to set clear boundaries with the clients, right from the outset.


Composed in “Plain English”, specifically with designer professionals in mind, this Client Agreement is easy for both the business owner and client to understand. When incorporated with a solid Scope Of Work and a comprehensive Fee Estimate, these terms will form an integral part of a professional Design Proposal.


These terms cover the key areas of a client relationship, including:

  • General Disclaimers
  • Your Responsibilities as a Designer
  • Timings
  • Procurement
  • Variations
  • External Service Providers
  • Dealing With Architects
  • Photography
  • Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright
