Written agreements are a way of creating security for both designers and clients. There has long been a lack of guidelines and recommendations for agreements in this area, which is why Konstnärernas Riksorganisation (The Artists’ Association of Sweden) recently launched “Recommendations for Design Agreements” – to provide support and advice to designers and clients in the preparation and implementation of a design assignment. The recommendations aim at:
• Strengthening the role of designers in negotiations with clients and developing cooperation between designers and clients.
• Strengthening the designer's ability to clarify his/her competence and the understanding of the designer's competence and professional role.
• Creating guidelines and principles that all actors in the design field can relate to and refer to, for example in negotiations.
