Between myself, [your name], and you [customer name].
I will always do my best to fulfil your needs and meet your expectations, but it's important to
have things written down so that we both know what's what, who should do what and when, and
what will happen if something goes wrong. In this contract you won't find any complicated legal
terms or long passages of unreadable text. I have no desire to trick you into signing something
that you might later regret. What I do want is what's best for both parties, now and in the future.
So in short:
You ([customer name]), located at [customer address] are hiring me, [my name], located at
[address], to [design and develop a web site] for the estimated total price of [total] as outlined in
our previous correspondence. Of course it's a little more complicated, but I'll get to that.
2. What do both parties agree to do?
You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your
organisation. You will give me everything I need to complete the project as, when, and in the
format I need it. You will review my work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner
too. Deadlines work two ways, so you will also be bound by dates we set together. You will also
agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
Ihave the experience and ability to do everything I have agreed with you and I will do it all in a
professional and timely manner. I will endeavour to meet every deadline that is set and on top of
that I'll maintain the confidentiality of everything you give me.
3. Getting down to the nitty gritty
I create 'personality-oriented' designs that communicate and connect your personal goals with
your clients within the community and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many
devices and screen sizes. I create iterative designs and use predominantly HTML5 and CSS3 so I
won't waste time mocking up every template as a static visual.
