1. AIGA Standard Agreement for Designers now on Docracy

    If you’re a designer, you’ve definitely heard of AIGA, the professional association for design (http://www.aiga.org). You might even be familiar with their Standard Form of Design Services, a solid and vetted agreement that gives strong protection to the designer: http://www.aiga.org/standard-agreement/

    We’re excited to announce that as of today Docracy, together with AIGA, are allowing you to complete and execute versions of this contract online. We’ve even used our branching system to create different versions relevant to your medium and licensing of choice. For example, here is a version of the contract for interactive and web projects. We’ve added easy to understand fields allowing for quick sending and signing.

    Docracy’s goal is to make trustworthy documents easy to find and execute. We hope more designers will adopt this standard now that it’s easier to customize and sign, reducing the burden on both designers and clients alike. Please let us know what you think by posting a comment or question on any of the documents!

    PS: We made a diagram to help you out finding the version of the agreement that best fits to your needs.
