When you work with Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc on a project, our agreement and work are governed by the following terms and conditions; it is understood by both parties that you agree to this for the contract and/or project duration when you agree to a project estimate supplied by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc and engage Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc for the work outlined in that estimate. In all instances, ‘The Client’ as referred to below is the party that Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc has been engaged by for the project. By engaging Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc, you agree to these terms and conditions exclusively. A reference and a link to this page are supplied in PDF file estimates supplied by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc.
Due to the global nature of clients who engage Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc, these Terms & Conditions are supplied purposefully only in English. It is understood when a client, as described on this page, engages Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc for any design work that they understand and agree to these Terms & Conditions in full.
Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc will provide a Finished Product(s) to The Client in the form of source, rendered, and asset files (if all are either required or requested by The Client), upon payment of the full agreed amount, or upon confirmation of a date for payment of the Finished Product(s) and payment confirmation by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc on that date. These files become the exclusive property of The Client upon acceptance of delivery.
02. Project Management & Communication
Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc will require one point of contact during the Contract / Project Duration for clarifying requirements for design, key features, usability, and maintenance issues. Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc requires this person to be available to answer questions arising from the project within 24 hrs on workdays (subject to reasonable exceptions) and to have authority to make design and related decisions on the system. If this is not possible, any timeframe provided by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc may be subject to change due to this limitation of communication(s).
Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc may manage this Contract / Project Duration using project tracking software including wikis, issue tracking, sub-version integration, announcements, and timelines. The Client’s Point of Contact, stakeholders, and collaborators will all have appropriate access to the project and all associated assets if required or requested by The Client. This system will serve as a primary mode of communication, documentation, and reporting. Any approval marked within the system by the Point of Contact will be considered official written approval.
Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc typically provides estimates for a project on a total project costing basis, rather than a per-hourly rate, unless otherwise requested.
04. Response Time
Within the duration of this Contract / Project Duration, Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc will make every effort to reply to inquiries within 48 hours except where The Client has been previously notified of a period of limited availability. Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc will respond in good faith but cannot guarantee any specific action within a given time frame.
Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc retains the right to use The Client within its roster of clients. A link to the Client website/application website will be placed on the Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc website as part of its business portfolio.
06. Payment Schedule
Unless there is a previous written agreement in place between The Client and Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc, a commencement fee calculated as a percentage of the total Contract / Project cost is required at the beginning of a Contract / Project Duration; once this payment is received by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc and confirmed in writing, the project will be scheduled by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc. The commencement fee is non-refundable and non-negotiable. Before any online content is launched or provided, original files and/or artwork of the Finished Product(s) are supplied to the client, the remaining percentage will be invoiced and is payable to Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc.
If, after the project has commenced, subsequent invoices are not paid within 30 days, a 10 percent “delayed payment” fee will be charged, unless a written agreement is in place between Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc and The Client. This initial 10 percent figure will be added upon each recurring 30-day period until the full amount has been received by the designer.
If the project is canceled during the Contract / Project Duration, payments made before that date will not be refunded. Work completed to the cancellation date not covered by the payment schedule paid to that date will be invoiced as part of due process; this will be calculated at an hourly rate starting at $110, or an appropriate calculated percentage of the Contract / Project Duration which may include additional third-party costs where necessary; this is payable to formally close the project agreement. Any resources developed until the point of cancellation will be supplied upon payment of the final invoice and a formal cancellation notice will be served by Boston Graphic Design Studio Llc.
07. Review, Expiration, Or Cancellation
This Contract / Project Duration is valid for the calendar year in which it was signed or agreed upon in so far as project commencement, upon which point it expires. Upon expiration, both parties may review and amend the Contract / Project Duration and decide whether or not to renew. This Contract / Project Duration may be terminated by either party with a full 30-day written notice. All payments will be due and all work will be submitted upon the termination of Contract / Project Duration.
If after project commencement client communication (face-to-face, telephone, or email) stops for a period of 180 days, the project can be canceled, in writing by the designer, and ownership of all copyrights shall be retained by the designer. A cancellation fee for work completed shall be paid by the client, with the fee based on the stage of project completion. The fee will not exceed 100 percent of the total project cost.
