Really important and worth reading…

We work well with our clients because our relationships are based on honesty and trust, but all work needs guidance in the forma of terms and conditions.

Please do read them – it’s important that you know what we charge for and why we charge it, why certain copyright files are not released by us and also what charges you might incur for late payment, additional work or copyright releases.

If you have any questions, please do ask immediately.

Thank You.

For clients that are unresponsive for a period of more that 4 working days from the moment of sending the brief via email, we assume that they have not a clear idea of what they want, and that they need our help on the design direction.
