From client brief to billing docket to employee contract to copyright agreement, the RGD has organized and made available all the forms & agreements that you'd require for your design practice on our website.
While these documents have been included in the RGD Handbook, they seemed to be used only by a few who were aware of them. With an aim to provide easy access to this resource, we have now listed them under the 'Forms & Agreements' tab in the 'Resources' section of our website.
The forms & agreements also include a guide on how and when to use them with special considerations for solo and in-house designers where applicable.
"Drafting forms and agreements is a necessary but challenging part of our profession requiring considerable additional knowledge outside of our forte. We saw value in making these forms provided in the RGD Handbook accessible to all through the website. This initiative reiterates the RGD's commitment to provide tools and resources to support designers and their work," offers Elyse Maxwell RGD, Chair & VP, Membership Committee.
"Nobody likes doing paperwork. With this new document library, we hope to reduce the guesswork of the administrative processes that inevitably come with design work, so designers can spend less time doing paperwork and more time designing." - Evelyn Csiszar RGD who is spearheading this initiative with Ian Chalmers RGD and Ruth Farrugia RGD.
It is to be noted that these forms and sample agreements are generic and not intended to be used as is. They are provided as a source of information and reference only.
