For all design services agreed to be taken on requires a 50% deposit of the agreed fee before work goes ahead. Balancing fees are only required after work is completed and before the completed work is handed over or transferred to the client. Design services charged at a fee of £100 or equivalent and under requires full payment before work begins. If in any case you inform us that you no longer wish for work to go ahead after you have paid a deposit and once work has initially begun, we reserve the right to charge a 10% cancellation fee (of full service price) which will be taken from your initial deposit.
If you request a design service you later wish to update to a more advanced design service, we reserve the right to charge an additional fee. An example of this is the service of logo design for web which you may later wish to use for print and promotional material. The copyright in all logo design for print are transferred to the client once complete, paid for and transferred. Logos may then be used for national and international marketing and retail purposes.
All design projects are filed and confirmed as completed once client has paid the balancing fee and work has been transferred, uploaded or in other actions handed over to the client. Future or extra updates requested by the client or representative to be performed on completed works will be charged at an hourly rate of £30 or a fixed updating rate depending on the size of update which will be confirmed.
The Client agrees to keep all design credits intact wherever placed unless prior written consent has been given by us for the removal. The insertion of a credit line is as standard with the majority of works produced including but not limited to website design, flyer design, poster design and blog design. In instances where the client specifically requests the removal of any credits of our service we reserve the right to charge a fee based on, but not limited to the standard of work, type of service and work efforts. All credit lines are discreetly placed without the domination of works.
