Before I start the design process I will need you to fill out a short worksheet/questionnaire about your project. This gives me a good idea of what you require and enables me to give you an accurate quote and accurate designs. If you are unable to fill out this questionnaire, I will unfortunately not be able to take on your project.
A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the estimated cost is required to begin work. Work on the project can only start when this payment has been received. The balance is required on completion. Final artwork will only be handed over when the full balance has been paid.
Payment may be made either via Electronic Funds Transfer (South African clients only), or PayPal (international clients). If you do not have a PayPal account you can still pay your invoice with a debit or credit card directly on the PayPal website.
The cost of most projects includes 3 revision rounds. Additional revisions are available at my hourly rate. A revision round is a list of small changes or edits that the client suggests and discusses with me in order to move forward with the right design direction.
Should the project be cancelled before completion, payment will be due for any completed work minus the deposit amount.
My work hours are between 9:00 and 17:00 (GMT +2) Monday to Friday. I do not respond to emails on Saturdays and Sundays.
ALL communication will be done via email. It is quick, free and I like to keep a written record of our conversation. No design enquiries or revision requests will be taken via telephone.
Additionally, if I do not hear from you for 20 consecutive days, your project will be cancelled, your deposit will not be refunded and no design files will be released.
Confidentiality and Ownership
All work created for the client and any concepts discussed are kept confidential. Upon completion of work and payment received, the client owns all artwork that the designer has created specifically for the client.
Reproduction of work
The designer retains personal rights to use the completed project and any preliminary designs for the purpose of design competitions, future publications on design, educational purposes and the marketing of the designer’s business. Where applicable the client will be given any necessary credit for usage of the project elements.
The client may not alter the final logo design in any way, except to change its size for printing or digital display. If changes need to be made, Clementine Creative may be contacted to make required changes for an additional fee.
I will need you to have all the content (copy, photos, logos etc.) ready for me before I start with your website design. The sooner you have the content ready, the sooner we can start. Please also ensure that there are no copyright infringements as you will be accountable for this.
