Introduction

Our Process

Since designing is fairly similar no matter what you're working on, the process we go through largely applies to all of our products. If for any reason you don't like our process, just let us know and we'll be more than happy to accomodate you.

For each customer we assign a member of our team to be the correspondent that will work with you throughout the entire process.

In the rest of this explanation we will refer to whatever we're working on for you, be it logo, website, print product, and/or packaging as your “project.” We will also be sure to explain to you in person when you meet with one of us how your project will be done exactly including time frames.

Brainstorm

Meet With Us

To start your design process you need to meet with a member of our team and answer the following questions:

What do you want people to think about your company?

What do you want people to think when they see your “project?”

What sort of “project” do you like? (If you need help finding logos you like try this website.)(Make sure you either email us pictures of “project” you like or bring them with you.)

The Big Idea

Graphic Design is all about communicating ideas. In order for your logo to be successful, it needs to communicate what you want it to. After you've met with us, we brainstorm different ways to visually communicate what you want the logo to say. At this point we're going for ideas, not looks, so when we show you our sketchbook, don't expect the Mona Lisa.

This is the most key part in all of the process so don't be surprised if it takes a while.

Development

Refining the Big Idea

At this point we've shown you some of the better ideas we've come up with from the Brainstorming Phase. We now have to refine those ideas to find the most effective ones, usually about three to four. We then take those ideas and begin to render them in different ways to find the most effective versions.

Eventually we reduce the number of ideas we work on down to two or three main ideas, and then develope as many different iterations or depictions of those ideas as we can.

Revisions

The number of revisions that we go through for a certain product can vary depending on what it is, and of course what you think about them.

Finalize

Final Touches

Last comes the final polishing of the product — last minute details that require some ironing out. Your involvement in the final touches largely depends on what your project is.

At this point we also finalize the preparation of your product for whatever future it has whether it's the printing press, your website, the manufacturer, etc.

Delivery of the Product

After you've okayed the final product, the time comes to hand it over. We usually handle that via a file transfer site that you can always access. We usually keep your final product around anyway, so if you were to lose it we'd have a copy on hand.

As you'll read on the contract, we retain the right to put your final product on our website to show off what we can do. If you have a problem with that, that is negotiable.

.

How We Work

Each project is assigned a specific contact for your convenience, but worked on as a team to give you the best possible end product. We find that more minds involved in a project makes for a much better final product. Along those same lines, we have found that involving you in the process gives you a greater appreciation for the product.

For your convenience we have outlined the steps that we go through for each project in our process.

Contract

Preface

The following is the main contract that we use for our design/development. We like to keep things simple so everyone knows what's going on and to limit confusion. Feel free to ask us any questions you might have about the contents of this contract.

Why a Contract?

We use a contract to protect both you and us. We use a contract so that you can feel safe working with us, knowing that your investment of both time and money won't go to waste. Unless you request something different, this is the exact contract we use (except the bold words are replaced.)


Contract

Between (employee) at Fire Lizard Graphic Design and (customer name)

Summary

We will always do our best to fulfill your needs and meet your goals, but sometimes it is best to have a few simple things written down so that we both know what is what, who should do what and what happens if things go wrong. In this contract you won't find complicated legal terms or large passages of unreadable text. We have no desire to trick you into signing something that you might later regret. We do want what's best for the safety of both parties, now and in the future.

In short

You, (customer name) are hiring Fire Lizard Graphic Design to design and develop a product (website, logo, etc.) for the estimated total price of ($price) outlined in our previous correspondence. The agreed payment plan is at the end of the document.

What do both parties agree to do?

As our customer, you have the power and ability to enter into this contract on behalf of your company or organization. You agree to provide us with everything that we need to complete the project including text, images and other information as and when we need it and in the format that we ask for. You agree to review our work, provide feedback and sign-off approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work two ways and you will also be bound by any dates that we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.

We have the experience and ability to perform the services you need from us and we will carry them out in a professional and timely manner. Along the way we will endeavor to meet all the deadlines set but we can't be responsible for a missed launch date or a deadline if you have been late in supplying materials or have not approved or signed off our work on-time at any stage. On top of this we will also maintain the confidentiality of any information that you give us.

Details of the works

We will create designs for the look-and-feel, layout and functionality of your web site. This contract includes one main design plus the opportunity for you to make up to two rounds of revisions. If you're not happy with the designs at this stage, you will pay us in full for all of the work that we have produced until that point and you may either cancel this contract or continue to commission us to make further design revisions at the daily rate set out in our original estimate.

HTML/CSS layout templates

If the project includes XHTML or HTML markup and CSS templates, we will develop these using valid HTML5 markup and CSS3 for styling. We will test all our markup and CSS in current versions of all major browsers including those made by Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla and Google. We will also test to ensure that pages will display visually in a similar, albeit not necessarily an identical way, in Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 for Windows as this browser is now past its sell-by date.

We will not test these templates in old or abandoned browsers, for example Microsoft Internet Explorer 5, 5.5 or 6 for Windows or Mac, previous versions of Apple's Safari, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome unless otherwise specified. If you need to show the same or similar visual design to visitors using these older browsers, we will charge you at the daily rate set out in our original estimate for any necessary additional code and its testing.

Text content

We are not responsible for writing or inputting any text copy unless we specified it in the original estimate. We'll be happy to help though, and in addition to the estimate we will charge you at $45 per hour, including a free initial consultation, for copy writing or content input.

Photographs

If needed, you will supply us photographs in digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs we can suggest vendors of stock photography. Any time we spend searching for or taking appropriate photographs will be charged at $45 per hour, after a free initial consultation to determine if this is the best route to take.

Changes and revisions

We know from plenty of experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your first idea about how something should look, or how it might work. We don't want to limit either your options or your opportunities to change your mind.

The estimate/quotation prices at the beginning of this document are based on the number of hours that we estimate we'll need to accomplish everything that you have told us you want to achieve. If you do want to change your mind, add extra pages or templates or even add new functionality, that won't be a problem. You will be charged the hourly rate set out in the estimate we gave you. Along the way we might ask you to put requests in writing so we can keep track of changes.

Technical support

You may already have professional web site hosting; you might even manage that hosting in-house; if that's the case, great. If you don't manage your own web site hosting, we can set up an account for you at one of our preferred, third-party hosting providers. We will charge you a one-off fee for installing your site on this server, plus any statistics software such as Google Analytics; then the updates to, and management of that server, plus any support issues will be up to you.

We are not a web site hosting company and so we do not offer or include technical support for web site hosting, email or other services relating to web site hosting. If you do require help with anything beyond the design and development of your site, we'll be happy to help.

Legal stuff

We can't guarantee that the functions contained in any web page templates or in a completed web site will always be error-free and so we can't be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages arising out of the operation of or inability to operate this web site and any other web pages, even if you have advised us of the possibilities of such damages.

If any provision of this agreement shall be unlawful, void, or for any reason unenforceable, then that provision shall be deemed severable from this agreement and shall not affect the validity and enforceability of any remaining provisions.

Copyrights

You guarantee to us that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork that you provide us for inclusion in the web site are either owned by your good selves, or that you have permission to use them.

When we receive your final payment, copyright is automatically assigned as follows:

You own the graphics and other visual elements that we create for you for this project. We will give you a copy of all files and you should store them really safely as we are not required to keep them or provide any native source files that we used in making them.

You also own text content, photographs and other data you provided, unless someone else owns them. We own the XHTML markup, CSS and other code and we license it to you for use on only this project.

We love to show off our work and share what we have learned with other people, so we also reserve the right to display and link to your completed project as part of our portfolio and to write about the project on web sites, in magazine articles and in books about web design.

Payments

We are sure you understand how important it is as a small business that you pay the invoices that we send you promptly. As we're also sure you'll want to stay friends, you agree to stick tight to the following payment schedule, which will be as follows, but may be revised based on further conversations between us.

50% of total estimated fee upon agreement of initial design: ($deposit fee)

Remainder of fee payable not more than 14 days after receipt of finished product: ($remainder fee)

Interest accrued if payment is more than 14 days late is 5% of outstanding amount to be added every 7 days, starting from 15th day after receipt of finished product.

But where is all the horrible small print?

Just like a parking ticket, you cannot transfer this contract to anyone else without our permission. This contract stays in place and need not be renewed. If for some reason one part of this contract becomes invalid or unenforceable, the remaining parts of it remain in place.

Although the language is simple, the intentions are serious and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of US courts.

Everyone should keep a copy for their records.
