Between Daniel Neuman and "Keep it Cali" - Tab Perry, Mariha Hart.
This contract is designed to ensure that we're both protected from any unexpected circumstances. It also lays out the basic groundwork for how the project will progress, and what's expected of us both.
So in short;
You, "Keep it Cali" - Tab Perry, Mariha Hart, are hiring me, Daniel Neuman, to design and develop a brand for the estimated total price of $12,200 as outlined in the proposal provided.
You: You (Tab Perry & Mariha Hart) have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of "Keep it Cali". You agree to provide me with everything that I need to complete the project including text, images and other information as and when I need it, and in the format that I ask for. You'll review my work and provide feedback and approval in a timely manner. Deadlines work two ways, so you'll also be bound by any dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
Me: I, Daniel Neuman have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from me and I will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way I will endeavour to meet all the deadlines set but I 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 my work on-time at any stage. On top of this I will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give me.
This contract is for the following deliverables:
I'm not responsible for writing or editing any text copy unless specified in the original estimate. If you'd like me to write new content or edit text for you, I can provide a separate estimate for that from my copywriter.
You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. In the event that I have to purchase stock photography, vector images, or other graphics for the completion of your project, those charges will be reflected in your final invoice.
This contract is fixed-price, however, sometimes things change throughout the scope of a project. I don't want to limit your ability to change your mind. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won't be a problem. Any additional fees will be confirmed in writing prior to doing the work. Additional revisions beyond the agreed amount are billed at $125/hr.
I can't guarantee that my work will be error-free and so I can't be liable to you or any third-party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you've advised me of them. Finally, if any provision of this contract shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this contract and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.
First, you guarantee that all elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork you provide are either owned by you, or that you've permission to use them.
Then, when your final payment has cleared, copyright will be automatically assigned as follows:
You'll own the visual elements that I create for this project. I'll give you source files and finished files and you should keep them somewhere safe as I'm not required to keep a copy. You own all elements of text, images and data you provided, unless someone else owns them.
I'll own the unique combination of these elements that constitutes a complete design and I'll license that to you, exclusively and in perpetuity for this project only, unless we agree otherwise. This basically just means that you can't take the design I made for you and sell it to Nike, but otherwise won't impact you.
I love to show off my work and share what I've created with other people, so I reserve the right to display this project on my website, social media or in any promotional material.
I'm sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that I send you promptly.
Deposit required upfront to begin project: $4,000
Remainder of fee payable plus any additional hours/revisions that were agreed upon not more than 10 days after receipt of finished product and invoice: $ 8,200
Interest accrued if payment is more than 10 days late is 5% of outstanding amount to be added every 7 days.
You can't transfer this contract to anyone else without my 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.
This Agreement must be signed and returned before Designer can schedule or begin this job.
Electronic signatures shall be considered legal and binding.
