Rights and ownership
Rights: All services provided by the designer shall be for the exclusive use of the client. Upon payment of all fees, the following reproduction rights for all approved final designs created by the designer for this project shall be granted:
- Client to gain full transferable rights to brand identity.
- Client to gain full license to reproduce works through commercial printers.
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 finalized prior to project commencement, unless requested by the client at a later date.
The client will make a 50 percent down payment prior to work commencing. The project can be scheduled once the down payment is
received by the designer. The down-payment is non-refundable. The remaining 50 percent is payable to the designer upon completion of the
project, and before original artwork is supplied to the client. No printed materials will be ordered prior to final payment. Payment plans are
available upon request and must be agreed upon before work commences. All payment is due within 2 weeks of final invoice.
Cancellation: If after project commencement client communication (face-to-face, telephone, or email) stops for a period of 180 days, the project can be
canceled, in writing by the designer, 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
Miscellaneous Samples: The designer may use such copies and samples for publication, exhibition, or other promotional purposes. 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.
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.
Consensus: 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.
