Essential Legal Kit for Graphic Designers
Branding is kinda your thing. From designing logos, to coming up with colour palettes, to putting together a brand strategy – if someone needs to make their biz look profesh, they're coming straight to you! But before you get started on their aesthetically pleasing and carefully curated creation, you need to have your legals in place. That way, you can focus on beautifying your client's brand, knowing that the legal bits and pieces are totally taken care of.
Who's it for?
Our Essential Legal Kit for Graphic Designers is for creatives who focus on designing logos, illustrations, and other graphic elements for their clients. If you also fancy yourself some web design, check out our Essential Legal kit for Design Studios – and if you dabble in copywriting and social media management, too, you'll want to cosy up with our Essential Legal Kit for Creative Agencies.

A couple of quick things to make sure we’re on the same page:
First, purchasing our templates, utilising our free resources or having a chat with us as part of a consultation doesn’t create a lawyer-client relationship between you and Foundd Legal (sorry!). It also doesn’t constitute legal advice.
All templates adhere to Australian principles of contract law and are designed for those doing business in Australia (unless they specifically state that they are in accordance with New Zealand law, for businesses in New Zealand). Similar principles may apply in your jurisdiction, but we recommend that you consult with a qualified lawyer in your area prior to purchasing our templates.
While we do our best to minimise legalese (that’s complex lawyer-speak) within our contracts, there are certain things that require particular wording in order to best protect you and your business. Please don’t expect our contracts to be super simple - they’re as simple as they possibly can be, while still being comprehensive and putting your needs first (even the ones you didn’t know you had!). Of course, if you’re having trouble understanding something specific, you’re welcome to get in touch with any questions!
