I love the templates that Sarah offers. Not only are they set up in a very easy way to use, but they are super easy to rebrand and make your own. Plus she uses some very clever features to make it more efficient and fool-proof!

Jessica Haines
Sarah breaks things down so they are easy to understand and implement, and her templates are AMAZING! Not only do the templates save me hours of work, but they have also taught me new InDesign tricks even though I thought I had pretty much mastered them!

I finally opened the actual template, and it’s FAB!! I thought I had an expert level indesign knowledge, but this doc has all the bells and whistles!

You’ve made it soooo easy to put together a proposal quickly, and as a new biz owner, having all the tips and words there ready to go is a massive timesaver. 100% worth it, and would recommend.

Can I customise the design of the templates?

Yes! All the templates are set up with styles and master pages so they can be updated to your branding super quickly. You can watch this video to see how easy it is.

You can also copy the content out of the google doc and place it in your own document or CRM/CMS.

How can I use the templates?

You can use the templates in your design business. These are templates designed to make your design business admin streamlined and stress-free!

What file types are the files delivered in?

It depends on which template you purchase. Some are PDF guides. But most are editable InDesign, Affinity, Google Docs and Canva. We will soon be building our templates into Dubsado, too. 

You don’t have to use our documents, though, you can simply copy and paste our content into your own file of choice or CRM!

Is there a limit to how many times I can use a templates?

Nope! As long as you only use them within your design business (i.e.  you can’t transfer ownership, sell or share the templates with anyone else) there is no limit on how many times you can use our templates.

Will I have access to updates?

Yes! You will have lifetime access to updates for as long as the product is for sale.

Are these templates written by a lawyer?

No, I am not a lawyer. I am a graphic designer and these are the templates I have developed in over 10 years of being in business. I do highly recommend getting your contract written by a lawyer, though. Foundd Legal do fantastic legal templates which I use in my business.

Can I use the images in your templates?

Yes, all the images used are free stock images.

What language are the templates in?

The templates are currently written in Australian / British English.

We have plans to release an American English version soon!

Can I use the templates in my CRM/CMS?


We will have Dubsado versions of our templates coming soon, but in the meantime, you can copy the content straight into your CRM/CMS from our google docs.

Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’m the admin geek who developed these templates over the last ten years in my graphic and web design biz.

I’ve been where you are. I spent years chasing my tail but knowing that if I just set my mind to it, my business life could be easier… could be better.

I’ve run my own graphic design business, Slinky Did It, for the last 10 years and have been lucky enough to score some big-name clients like the European Union and the ABC. But it wasn’t until I put some serious blood, sweat and tears into my design business systems, processes and communication that I actually started to reap the rewards of living the freelance dream!

I created Designer Admin to give other designers insider access to my project methodology and the shortcut I wish I had when setting up my systems and processes… the ability to plug and play someone else’s templates into my process!

So are you ready?
