Graphic Design Ethics

Graphic Design Industry Ethical and Legal Work Practices 

Ethical & legal work practises in the design industry

1.   In the context of design, share your knowledge on ethical and legal work practises in day-to-day work activities.

  1. ·       Don't steal.
  2. ·       Don't copy.
  3. ·       Don't lie.
  4. ·       Don't cheat.
  5. ·       Do NOT work for free!

Protect Your Copyrights

By law, the graphic designer retains the right to his or her work. Owning the rights to your work gives you the right to get paid for additional use of a design and protect it from unwanted changes. Be careful of situations in which a client requests "work-for-hire," as this implies you will not retain the copyright. There are only certain situations in which this is legal.

Always Use a Contract

You may trust your client, and they may trust you, but a good rule of thumb is to always use a contract. Signing a contract should not be seen as an uncomfortable moment in which you are telling the client everything you require and that they can't do. Instead, it should be seen as an agreement that protects both parties. If you are constantly doing small jobs or updates for a particular client, you may want to draft a contract that spells out the terms of this work rather than having one for each project. Larger projects should have a specific contract that details the job to be completed.
