All designs must be paid for in advance to me starting the project. Upon request, a payment schedule may be arranged and contracted. Due to the work involved in the design process, unfortunately, refunds can and will not be given. Please, be sure that you are 100% ready to go through with your design project prior to payment.
I know that you are excited to get your new site up and running so I work as fast as I can. Each project is unique and therefore, timeline will be provided in formal written contract. Branding projects normally take approximately 30 days- web development projects can take between 30-90 days depending on project scope.
Communication is KEY:
In order for you and I to successfully complete your design as you wish, it is imperative that the communication is solid. Due to the complexity of each project, I must complete each one in a timely matter. Please, be sure to respond to emails in a timely fashion. If there is no communication after 90 days, your project will be null and there will be no refund issued.
During the initial design process, revisions will be unlimited. After project completion any change will be done at a hourly charge of $75.
