The following terms have been tailored and simplified throughout fifteen years in business to help make things as straightforward as possible for both of us during our working relationship.

Payment schedule

You’ll make a non-refundable 50 percent payment before the project begins. I can schedule the work as soon as payment is received. The remaining amount is payable when we finish, before final files are supplied.

Rights and ownership

When you’ve paid the full amount, you’ll have ownership of the final designs created during the project. You can then pass my work to others for things such as future modification or commercial printing. Essentially, you won’t need my permission to do anything with the supplied files. The only right I reserve is the ability to use the work for self-promotion, such as in my portfolio, publications, award entries, and exhibitions.

Communication

Email anytime, or call me on +44 7739 530 457, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, between 9am and 5pm (UK time). I’m equally happy to set up a video call on Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, etc.

Digital files

I’ll store a copy of your files for at least one year after they’re sent, just on the off-chance something happens at your end after you’ve received them.

Miscellaneous

Samples: You won’t mind sending me samples of print design that result from the project deliverables. I can then photograph the items for self-promotion.

Confidentiality: If any information you provide needs to stay under wraps then please tell me by email before the project begins. This may affect the pricing within the proposal.

Indemnity: This part’s included upon the recommendation of all major international design organisations. You agree to indemnify me 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 and arising out of the work I supply. Let me quickly point out that my work has never resulted in any legal disputes, and I fully intend on it staying that way.

Consensus

The above terms and conditions will be supplied alongside the first invoice in a PDF document. Transfer of your downpayment means you’re happy to proceed.
