Professional Workflow For Web Designers
Being a great Web designer or developer is one thing; running a successful freelance business is another. Whether you already have experience working for a company or have just graduated from design school, being self-employed entails a number of tasks that you most likely haven’t had to deal with so far. As a freelance Web designer, you’ll often have to do it all yourself, and sometimes all alone.
This Smashing Package consists of 26 designer workflow icons, 20 vector graphics and four exclusive articles which have been exclusively prepared to help all Web designers and developers improve their business workflow and execute successful projects. We’re focused on helping you manage those arduous and unpopular tasks of the Web designer, to ensure that you make sound decisions when doing business with clients.
The four exclusive articles cover the following topics: the legal documents you’ll need to conduct business; lessons to be learned from working in a corporate environment; understanding legal relationships; and what to know about managing your finances. Their titles are:
- The Legal Side of Web Design,
- Lessons from Corporate Web Design,
- Web Design Risk Management and Liability,
- The Finances of Freelancing.
The following carefully prepared samples of legal documents are also provided, along with explanations of their purpose and best use:
- Client questionnaire,
- Confidentiality agreement,
- Contractual agreement,
- Email templates,
- Overdue payment notice,
- Payment reminder,
- Terms of service,
- Transfer of copyright,
- Work order.
As if that isn’t enough, we’ve assembled a collection of workflow icons and vector graphics that will give your textual content a better appearance and which you can use for any project, both private and commercial, including software, online services, templates and themes.
