Navigating the legal terrain of a web design project doesn't have to be as complicated as cracking the Google algorithm. Like SEO and PPC, there are key terms you need to familiarize yourself with to ensure that your web design projects, well, click. Understanding these terms is like grasping the fundamentals of HTML and CSS—you might not be writing the code, but knowing what's what is essential.

Critical Elements of a Web Design Contract

Ownership and Intellectual Property

Usually, Antares Media retains the intellectual property rights to the web design until payment is received in full. Once the final invoice is settled, these rights can transfer to you, unless stated otherwise.

Scope of Work

Ah, the blueprint! This outlines what the project will include—from the number of pages to the specific functionalities like contact forms, e-commerce capabilities, etc.

Payment and Pricing

This is the part where we talk money—how much, how often, and by what means. Normally, web design projects involve an upfront deposit, milestone payments, and a final installment.


We're all for second chances, and that's why we include a set number of revisions in our contracts. Any revisions beyond this would incur additional costs.


We map out the development milestones and expected delivery dates. Kind of like a GPS for your project.

Maintenance and Support

Website not a set-and-forget kind of deal; it needs ongoing TLC. So, details about maintenance services, like updates and backups, should be outlined.

Termination Clause

We hope it never comes to this, but hey, it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. This clause outlines the procedures for parting ways and any associated costs.

Real-World Example: Restaurant Client Scenario

Let's say you own a bustling restaurant and want a website to match. You'd likely need a custom design, e-commerce for gift cards, and maybe even a reservation system. The "Scope of Work" would outline these elements, along with pricing and payment schedules. After a two-round revision process, you're thrilled with the result, and once the final payment clears, the intellectual property rights transfer to you. Voila, you have yourself a snazzy, fully functional website that echoes the experience of dining in your establishment.


With these terms clarified, we're ready to turn your vision into a pixel-perfect reality. We're not in the business of "ctrl+C and ctrl+V"; each project is a unique algorithm waiting to be cracked.
