Terms and Conditions

Our basic Terms and Conditions. These can be modified on a project-by-project basis.

  • Designo may request a retainer to begin work on any project. Designo’s payment terms are Net Due On Receipt and Past Due After 30 Days at 1.5% interest per month.
  • Designo will reserve the right to notify its clients of intent to stop work if invoices are not paid within forty-five (45) days of the invoice date. Designo will stop work two (2) days after receipt of this notice by the client and will not resume work or deliver project materials until all delinquent invoices are paid in full. Such clients shall assume responsibility for all legal fees necessitated by any default in payment. All fees and reimbursable expenses will be paid in full upon acceptance by the client of materials described in this estimate.
  • Reimbursable expenses are in addition to the compensation for design services and include actual expenditures made by Designo and its professional consultants in the completion of this project. Reimbursable expenses include expenses for travel, photography, illustrations, reproductions, camera work, printing, prototypes, materials, messenger/delivery charges, and supplies related to the project. All reimbursable expenses are billed at cost plus 25%.
  • Fees or expenses exceeding our estimates by more than 20% will be discussed with the client prior to incurring such expenses. That is to say that cost overruns up to 20% are not unusual and will not necessarily be communicated before they are incurred. Modification of the scope of this project must be written, except that the invoices may include, and the client shall pay, fees or expenses that were orally authorized in order to progress promptly with the project. Charges for further design services and reimbursable expenses will be billed as these fees and expenses are incurred. The client shall be responsible for making additional payments for any changes made by the client in this project. The client shall offer Designo the first opportunity to make any such changes.
  • All reasonable deductions for any minor or material breaches committed by Designo shall be taken to arbitration only after Designo has had the opportunity to correct any breaches prior to arbitration.
  • This agreement may be terminated upon 30 days written notice by either party. Should the client cancel the contract, the client will pay a 10% contract cancellation fee to cover the costs of liquidation. All fees and expenses incurred to the date of receipt of such notice shall be paid in full. In the event of cancellation of this project, ownership of all copyrights and the original artwork shall be retained by Designo.
  • Designo retains ownership of all original artwork, whether preliminary or final, and the client shall return such artwork within thirty (30) days. Use of the original designs and artwork resulting from this project are limited to those uses described in this estimate. Other uses will be subject to review, and compensation to Designo will be negotiated.
