Rights: All services provided by the designer shall be for the exclusive use of the client other than for the designer’s promotional use. Upon payment of all fees, the following reproduction rights for all approved final designs created by the designer for this project shall be granted:
Ownership: The client shall be entitled to full ownership of all final artwork created during the project upon full payment of the agreed fee.
Third party contracts: The designer may contract with other creative professionals to provide services such as web development, photography, and illustration. Any third party terms and conditions will include full reproduction rights for the client. Where such contracting adds to the project cost, the client will first be asked for permission to proceed. No project will commence on the assumption that third parties might be required for project completion. Such details will be finalised prior to project commencement, unless requested by the client at a later date.
The designer can be reached by telephone or email from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm EST.
The client will make a 50 percent down-payment prior to work commencing. The project will be scheduled once the down-payment is received by the designer. The down-payment is non-refundable. The down-payment policy is non-negotiable. The remaining 50 percent is payable to the designer upon completion of the project, and before original artwork is supplied to the client.
If, after the project has commenced, subsequent invoices are not paid within 30 calendar days, a 5 percent “delayed payment” fee will be charged. This initial 5 percent figure will be added upon each recurring 30 day period until the full amount has been received by the designer.
If after project commencement client communication (face-to-face, telephone, or email) stops for a period of 100 days, the designer reserves the right to cancel the project, in writing, and ownership of all copyrights shall be retained by the designer. A cancellation fee for work completed shall be paid by the client, with the fee based on the stage of project completion. The fee will not exceed 100 percent of the total project cost.
Showcasing: The designer shall have the right to photograph all completed designs or installations and shall have the right to use such photographs for publication, exhibition, or other promotional purposes.
Confidentiality: The client shall inform the designer in writing before the project commences if any portion of any material or information provided by the client or if any portion of the project is confidential. If necessary, the designer is willing to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) provided by the client.
Indemnity: The client agrees to indemnify and hold harmless the designer from any and all claims, demands, losses, causes of action, damage, lawsuits, judgments, including attorneys’ fees and costs, but only to the extent caused by, arising out of, the work supplied by the designer.
A document containing the above terms and conditions will be supplied via email along with the first invoice. Acceptance should be stated in an email reply.
