I've got a web site to be designed and also have the majority of the material ready beside me. I've shortlisted an artist who is able to start. The question I've is, must i give the initial .psd graphics files of logo design etc towards the designer. Could it be ok to give the .psds or perhaps is there any risk in doing to ensure that I should know and canopy by having an agreement...

thanks ahead of time.. megabytes

If you can't steer clear of the handover, means if you want to begin using these PSDs, just obtain the risk included in a contract of explicit use and copyright as wel as non-disclosure.

I'd make certain there's a contract in position before you decide to hands anything over. Keep in mind that you cannot really prevent them from doing anything, however, you can construct what goes on when they do.

Your images are safe by copyright, however your agreement should show the relaxation of what's expected. Additionally towards the standard "What's shipped/when and how you have to payInch, you are able to construct the next:

  • Whether you receive the origin they develop (instead of only a publishable copy from the site)
  • If they'd like to take what they have produced for you and employ it for someone else (replace your logo design and then sell on another customer the website
  • What goes on with every other custom components
  • If they are permitted to speak to others regarding your work (NDA)

Before you decide to hands anything over, a minimum of possess a fundamental agreement in position - should you haven't compensated and also you cut ties, you can at any rate require these to destroy what they have received of your stuff, instead of fight together over what goes on once the relationship finishes.
