Being a creative in the art world could be wonderful as long as you are getting commissioned fairly for the amount and quality of work you do. Legal expertise in writing up contracts between artists and their freelance projects or other important projects might be ignored vowing to be unnecessary or simply too complicated. However, having no contract in place can cause serious problems down the line. Contracts, however, do strongly provide a sense of security.
In a 2011 medium article, the purpose for contracts was outlined as meant to be “the absolute, final, agreed-upon terms of an agreement, which only really become necessary when there’s a disagreement. As such, contracts favor over-inclusiveness because they want to pre-settle disputes before they arise.” The growing creative sectors filled with budding graphic designers or artists who get to do commissioned work need legal protection and safety when the terms of an agreement with their employer are constantly being breached or being taken advantage of.
