In my previous article I offered my thoughts on how to make it as a freelance web designer. One of the things I mentioned was the need for a solid contract and proposal so here I offer my contract and proposal templates, free for your use.

About The Downloads

I'm not sure where the contract came from; I picked it up somewhere over the years, so if you recognize it, please comment and let me know so I can give proper credit.

The proposal, budget, and timeline documents in AI format are all mine and have helped me to land projects ranging from $5k to $200k over the years (no joke). This is good stuff.
