Between Dexiin and (CLIENT NAME),
We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals, but sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so that we both understand the specific details, who is responsible, and what happens if things don’t go according to plan. In this contract, you won’t find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. We want what’s best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.
You, (CLIENT NAME) , are hiring Dexiin to design a logo for the estimated total price outlined in our previous correspondence.
What Do Both Parties Agree To Do?:
As our customer, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images and other information as and when we need it, and in the format that we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback and sign-off approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways and you will also be bound by any dates that we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from us and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way, we will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but we can’t be responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved or signed off our work on-time at any stage. On top of this, we will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us.
Details Of The Works:
We will create designs that are cohesive with your brand. This contract includes one main design plus the opportunity for you to make up to two rounds of revisions. If you’re not happy with the designs at this stage, you will pay us in full for all of the work that we have produced until that point and you may either cancel this contract or continue to commission us to make further design revisions at the daily rate set out in our original estimate.
We are not responsible for writing or inputting any text copy, such as slogans, unless we specified it in the original estimate. We’ll be happy to help though, and in addition to the estimate, we will charge you at a flat rate.
Imagery and Text:
If needed, you will supply us photographs and fonts either in digital or printed format. If you choose to buy stock photographs or fonts we can suggest vendors of photography and typography.
Changes And Revisions:
We will revise up to three times.
We can’t guarantee that the trademark acceptance of any logo element or in a completed logo will always be error-free and so we can’t be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to use this logo and any of its elements, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.
If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
You guarantee to us that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide us for inclusion in the logo design are either owned by you or that you have permission to use them.
When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:
You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project. We will give you a copy of all files and you should store them safely as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files that we used in making them.
You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided unless someone else owns them.
We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of our portfolio and to write about the project on websites, in magazine articles and in books about topics regarding any of our services.
We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. As we’re also sure you’ll want to stay colleagues, you agree to stick tight to the following payment schedule.
Your quote based invoice will be set up as 50% due upon receipt and 50% due at time of delivery or within two weeks after initial payment was made (whichever comes first). Interest accrued if payment is more than 14 days late is 5% of the outstanding amount to be added every 7 days, starting from the 15th day after receipt of finished product.
But Where Is All The Horrible Small Print?
Just like a parking ticket, you cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.
Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of United States of America courts.
Everyone should sign above and keep a copy for their own records.
