Services: When Brand X Republic is commissioned and engaged in the business of providing graphic design, website design and development services by the Client, Brand X Republic will provide the goods and/or services and list-of-includes detailed on the Client Proposal.
Terms & Timeline: The term of all projects will commence on the date that the Client issues the standard fifty percent (50%) deposit and shall not exceed sixty (60) days, unless otherwise agreed upon in writing or electronic signature by both Parties.
Our standard rate for any additional changes to all design materials after Client written confirmation of acceptance of the project is invoiced at $125 per hour or as otherwise provided on Brand X Republic Menu of Services. No additional work shall commence without the acceptance and written approval of the Client.
All content (i.e., text, images, video, audio) must be submitted by the Client in a timely manner or within fifteen (15) days of the paid deposit date. If the Client does not submit all of the content materials needed for the project, the time-line may be adjusted to accommodate a reasonable desired date agreed upon by both Parties, however, if the project exceeds sixty (60) days, the Client must pay a fifty percent (50%) payment of the remaining final balance to continue with the project.
Payment: A deposit of fifty percent (50%) is due upon signing the Standard Agreement(s) with Brand X Republic (Phase 1). The remaining balance is due upon completion of the project(s) as described in the Proposal and within five (5) business days of the invoice date submitted to and received by the Client. A late fee of twenty-five ($25) dollars will be applied to any past due date balance every fifteen (15) days that balance remains unpaid.
Stock Images: Any and all stock imagery the Client wishes to include in the website must be paid and provide by the Client. Brand X Republic may be hired to search for stock images within stock image websites (i.e., iStockPhoto.com, Shutterstock.com, BigStock.com) for a fee of $25 per hour (such services subject to Client’s prior written approval).
Website Launch: As a courtesy, Brand X Republic will upload the complete and final website to the Client’s hosting service provider prior to receiving final payment. At Brand X Republic’s discretion, if final payment is not received within five (5) business days of receipt of invoice, the website may be taken offline from the hosting provider until final payment is received in full.
Final Artwork (Print Materials): Upon final payment of the project price, Brand X Republic will provide to the Client all native and print-ready artwork in all formats for the Client’s ownership within 24 hours of receipt.
Early Contract Termination: Upon termination by Client without cause, the Client forfeits all deposits and payments made through the duration of the project phase. And upon either termination or completion of project, Agency will close the project and transfer and/or assign to Client: (1) all Work Product in Agency's possession or control belonging to Client, subject, however, to any rights of third parties; and (2) all contracts with third parties upon being duly released by Client and any such third party from any further obligations.
