DeSIGNING 

DESIGN PROCESS:

logo development and brand identity will always be designed first when you purchase any variety package or more than one item when you purchase a logo. ALL remaining services will be designed AFTER you have chosen your final logo.

DESIGN REVISIONS:

coming up with concepts and revisions TAKES TIME, I DO NOT rush anything. designing is an intimate gift, and i juggle with 3-5 clients at once. designing takes a MASSIVE AMOUNT of brainpower and energy. each design a piece of me is into it. i (your designer), am NOT a fountain of design, coming up with ideas for your concepts and revisions after receiving your feedback takes time. things don't just come to me it takes time to DESIGN.

all projects excluding website design will receive up to 3 revisions. once all revisions have been exhausted an additional fee of $75 per revision.

revisions include but are not limited too:

font change, color change, layout change, image layout. 

examples of a revision are:

instead of the ___ font can we use this one ____.

can this color be a little bit darker?

are you able to make the layout vertical vs horizontal

can we place more emphasis on ___

for the ___ graphic used can we tweak the colors a little more to these ___ instead

DO NOT revise like this:

can I see ___ instead of ___?

can you do ___?

i love this one but something is missing can you make it pop

i like number one but i would like too see more of concepts 2 and 4 added to that one

you may think you need to be as detailed when you're talking to a graphic designer but they will ONLY complicate things if the right terminology is NOT used. Being descriptive with your revisions does not mean being overly wordy as using too many words can confuse and elongate the design process. Simplicity is EVERYTHING! DO NOT overthink your revisions say what you mean and say it with your chest if you need to send a voice message because you aren't too good with explaining or describing what you want via text SAY THAT, so we can make it happen.

* once a final design has been chosen any other designs presented during your design process will IMMEDIAILTELY EXPIRE!! *

 

DESIGN IDEAS:

it is extremely viable that if you have any ideas regarding your project that those ideas are relayed to me. I AM NOT A MIND READER. if you don’t express what you want I will not know. failure to communicate your ideas will only delay your project completion. 

if you would like me to freestyle or you want to give me FULL 100% creative direction that needs to be expressed. do not say “I want you to do your thing” if you in fact have an idea for what you want.  


DESIGN APPROVAL:

drafts will be sent via an email attachment. if we fail to hear from you after we have reached out 2x your project will be .agged as abandoned. 

 

DESIGN CONTENT:

there is no rush to turn in the completed checklist/workbooks. ALL we ask is that you keep us updated as you are completing your information. a simple “I am still working on my content” is all we need. if we have not heard from you in 7 business days, we will reach out to you 2x after we have reached out to you 2x and we have not heard from you your project will be marked abandoned. we ask that please try to keep us updated at least every 5-7 business days. 

 

turnaround time does NOT start until you have successfully submitted ALL requested information for your project. 


 

final files 

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY:

Intellectual property (IP) refers to creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names, and images used in commerce. The third type of “property” that can be owned by a person or entity is  “intellectual property.” Ownership of intellectual property cannot be crystallized and de.ned as clearly as can the other two types of property because itself is intangible – it cannot be held, touched, or denied by physical boundaries. Instead, “intellectual property” is the ownership interest that a person or entity may have in creations of the human mind.  Ownership of intellectual property means ownership of a concept or idea rather than ownership of a parcel of property or object. Of course, as with real property and chattel, intellectual property can be sold or otherwise conveyed.

 

Intellectual property is usually initially owned by the person who thought of the concept or idea that is the subject of the intellectual property, although it can often be transferred or released through agreement, transaction,  operation of, or simply the passage of time. While it is held, ownership of intellectual property allows its owner to exclude other people from using the ideas or that comprise the intellectual property at issue. Depending on the intellectual property at issue and governing law, this right may be limited to preventing other people from using the intellectual property at issue for commercial purposes.
