Open Design aims to deal with its clients in a professional, timely, and favorable manner. By engaging Open Design LLC with their business, the clients will be accepting the following terms and conditions:
Project pricing will be based on the written, signed agreement between CLIENT and CONTRACTOR in a Total Fixed Fee for the project. Based on the scope of the project (deemed by CONTRACTOR) a 50% deposit may be due at the time of agreement signing. The remaining balance will be due on the date of delivery. This only applies to fixed-priced projects. Per month projects will be based on the agreed upon pricing in which the first month’s payment is due upon signage of Project Agreement before initiation of service.
Fee adjustments may be made due to rush delivery requests or prompt payment, as follows:
Upon receipt of full payment, all Work Product shall be the sole and exclusive property of CLIENT and CONTRACTOR does hereby assign and transfer all of its right title and interest in such Work Product to CLIENT. All Work Product which constitute original works of authorship arising in any manner from the performance of Services shall be the sole and exclusive property of CLIENT as “works made for hire”. CONTRACTOR reserves the right to reproduce any and all content created in print and electronic media for CONTRACTOR’s promotional purposes.
CLIENT has responsibility to proofread and review all work produced during and after the project. As a result, the CLIENT is fully responsible for any errors in spelling, typography, illustrative layout, photography, video or other errors discovered after printing or production or for any work performed by third-parties selected by the CLIENT. If such errors arise before completion, corrections will be made to fit CLIENT expectations.
In the event CLIENT cancels this agreement prior to completion or CONTRACTOR has deemed it proper to discontinue services due to outstanding charges, CLIENT shall pay CONTRACTOR for: (1) all work performed up to the date of termination; (2) all outside expenses and commitments that have been incurred and cannot be canceled; and, (3) a cancelation fee equal to $200 for each remaining month of the contract had the project been completed will be assessed. CONTRACTOR will provide CLIENT with an Invoice detailing the aforementioned cancelation expenses within 5 business days of notice for termination of services.
