This is A Single-Use Contract Unless Purchased with a Subscription

The Graphic Design Contract is a written contract between a Graphic Company or Independent Provider and a Client for a Graphic Design Project. This Legal Contract can be for general design for a menu, a logo lockup, an advertisement, or any other type of design project. This Agreement is more broadly drafted than our Logo Design Agreement to give more flexibility to create any type of project.

In a Graphic Design Agreement, the parties come together to define the scope of the project and their respective obligations so that everyone is on the same page before the new project begins.

This basic contract template describes the scope of the design project and sets up everything the parties need to start their business together. The design obligations, revisions, approvals, compensation, payment structures, and ownership rights in the final product are all critical points within the agreement.

The document is a critical foundational document for starting a project that will help the parties outline clear communication for their project together.

It covers the essential elements of the Statement of Work, such as:

  • Project Scope
  • Deliverables
  • Delivery Times
  • Payment Terms
  • Intellectual Property Rights Ownership
  • And More.

This Agreement outlines both parties’ rights, responsibilities, duties, and obligations.

I found Creators Legal very helpful and easy to use, that’s why I subscribed for the year. I picked a contract, used the form builder then switched to the Full Editor feature to modify/add certain things that pertain to us.

I loved the fact that I could find legal agreements for all marketing areas: podcast, social media, photography and more in one place! The annual subscription is worthy because I have access to all templates. The interface is also user friendly and very easy to use!

Saul Corona


Easy to use templates, and I like that I can quickly jump on here and send out contracts as I need them. I’ve used single contracts but it’s worth getting the subscription if you’re signing contracts regularly. Better than copy/pasting contracts as I was doing before.

Bill Corcoran Jr

It’s definitely been the most help I have ever had for legal stuff and at a super affordable price. Reviewing their contracts made me realize many things that I was not taking into account and that, in the long run, would hurt me in my business.
