When you first start freelancing and getting farther and farther from “The Mothership,” it can be intimidating.
Here’s the scenario:
You get contacted by someone or someplace that wants a website. How exciting is that!?! Congratulations!?! You meet with the client, you fire-off a million inquisitive questions to get a better handle on the project and your brand new client is very impressed.
You begin to dive into the design and keep in close communication with your favorite (and only) client. You learn about the effects of miscommunication and that it happens no matter how many questions you ask. Finally, after more hours that you ever imagined, the site is finished and launched!
You’re very excited. After all, you launched it three days early.
Four weeks later, they still haven’t paid you.
This is where some sort of contract would have come in handy.
Docpool is an effort to share and improve common documents used in the web design and development community.
The forms are easy to edit and customize to how you see fit.
A great starting point and framework to get you started. Sometimes you just need to be pointed in the right direction before you can really take of with something, and these are great for that!
For those seasoned pros out there, what do you recommend?
