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. If the Client is non-responsive and/or does not comply with providing materials or content requested by the Agency to enable completion of the project within the sixty (60) day timeline, the Client shall pay fifty percent (50%) of the remaining balance price. In the event the project extends beyond ninety (90) days without a mutually written agreement due to the Client's non-response and/or compliance with providing materials or content requested by the Agency, Brand X Republic has the right to close the project and the Client will forfeit all monies paid.
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.
Individual Project Payment: If the scope-of-service includes multiple projects, the remaining 50% balance for each project is due upon delivery and acceptance by the Client of each individual completed project deliverable, as outlined in the Proposal.
Additions: The rate for any additional design changes or refinements to all design materials after Client written confirmation of acceptance of the finalized design(s) is invoiced at $175 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.
Content: 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.
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).

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.
