Proofing can be one of the most clunky and stressful aspects of graphic design. But it doesn't have to be. All it takes are a few simple tweaks here and there and you can fine-tune your proofing process so it takes minimal effort on your part, is perfectly clear to your client, and works like a well-oiled machine!
Most of my expertise offers include resources such as templates or walk-throughs that can be emailed to you upon request.
Work-For-Hire contracts are the silent killers of the design industry. If you sign one as a graphic designer, you are waiving your rights to all of the work you do for the duration of the contract. Now, that doesn't mean you lose the rights altogether, it just means the employer can withhold them from you if they see fit.
This sort of contract is more trouble than it's worth and can be avoided if you know what to look out for and how to handle the situation when it arises. I'll show you how to spot a work-for-hire contract and walk you through a tactful way of getting it sorted out so that you can protect your portfolio use rights every time.
A simple but clear system of contracts can solve a multitude of headaches that freelance creatives face on a daily basis. From explaining your process to protecting your portfolio use rights, I've created an easily customizable 3-Part Contract System that you can adjust to fit your business and implement just as easily! This system will require minimal effort on your part while reducing the time you spend repeating yourself to your clients or putting out fires due to lack of communication.
