Conditions of Cooperation
Every project is unique, due to this fact every commission requires different amount of work, thus the prices are set individually.
At times the Client feels the need for the project to be meticulously refined and is willing to sacrifice suitable time. Yet sometimes it occurs that everything was needlessly dragged out until the last moment and the deadline is just around the corner, so there is no time to waste.
Before starting the commission we shall analyze and define the requirements, so we can asses how much time we need for it or how much time is left and what can be realistically done.
At this stage we also define all extra options - buying required fonts, acquisition of photos or getting them done by the photographer.
All base prices are available in the
2. Lead times
As a rule I try to reply on the same day I receive the message, but sometimes previous commissions require more effort than initially assumed, so everything can shift by 1-2 days.
As I respect the deadline, I require the same from the other side. I do understand that there are whims of fate, unforeseen options, last time changes in the project that extend the lead time, on which nobody has real influence.
The less complex the commission, the more I am able to forecast how long it will take, but with increase of complexity it is harder to accurately forecast the lead time.
We can set an initial frame of reference and try to keep as close to it as possible.
In some cases, the first project is a bullseye, in other the Client wishes for what would seem minor changes, but in fact they are making the original concept obsolete.
Dependant on the limit of corrections the Client has bought, the latter cases can be more frequent, but I like it when everything is refined and both sides are satisfied with the outcome.
Initially I prepare 2-3 propositions, based on the first agreements.
When one of them is chosen, we focus on it and refine it as long as it is perfect.
4. Publishing preparation.
This is the last stage before settlement
After perfecting and preparing all elements, the project is sent to the Client for verification and acceptance.
As the Client needs to green-light the project, regarding all the requested changes.
5. 5. Notice - Copyrights
I place all my work in the portfolio
If the Client does not wish for this to happen, please inform me, as the regulations in Poland state, that the copyrights cannot be fully transfered.
All copyrights for the project are owned by it's creator, but the proprietary copyrights are very much transferable and I am doing so attaching appropriate information on the bill and/ or contract which we will sign.
6. If it's not in the mail, it doesn't exist 😉
As I'm constantly on the go, I extensively use virtual memory augmentation, which my mail server is a part of.
All agreements and verifications are requested to be sent by e-mail
7. Additional info - contact
As I have my own businesses, I am also working a full time job as a Graphic Designer.
The cooperation will be strictly remote, so I am reachable by phone and mail in the evenings and weekends, which is both a pro and con of such a work model.
The upside is for example, a purring cat by the phone, as all my fur balls are eagerly helping me in my work.
I can settle on both VAT invoice and receipt.
After initial agreements - price, deadline, material transfer, you will receive a bill for 30% of the full commissions worth.
Upon payment of the aforementioned I am preparing the initial projects.
After final corrections and when the Client has accepted the project, a second bill for the reminder of the cost is sent, along with the information of transference of proprietary copyrights.
The contract will contain any and all mutual agreements.
Projects which are created as ready for print, will be sent after I receive the payment confirmation or receipt confirmation.
