BLURRD studio Terms & Conditions

These are my standard terms of service for any project we work on. Have a good read through, and if anything jumps out at you as a potential issue, let me know before the project begins and we can discuss any alterations that might be needed for your particular project.


Deposits, final payments and delivery
I reserve the right to request a 50% deposit prior to starting work on your project. If a deposit is requested, an invoice will be generated and delivered to you via email and payment is expected within 3-5 days of issue. By remitting deposit funds you are accepting these Terms of Service and entering a contract with BLURRD studio. I will invoice for the remaining cost of the project and associated services prior to the release of any files, website, or final exports. I reserve the right to withhold delivery until payment has been received in full. I reserve the right to invoice prior to the time detailed if you have been uncontactable/unresponsive for more than 21 days. You may reserve the right to request a payment plan which may be accepted at my discretion. All payment plans must be agreed to both parties in writing. All payments are to be made within 30 days of issue.I reserve the right to charge you for any fees incurred relating to commencement of collection and recovery processes for accounts that remain unpaid in excess of 30 days.


Restrictions to the signing of this agreement
These Terms of Service do not give you the rights or permission to use/modify/alter/replicate or borrow any of the previous ideas/concepts/sketches that I present. All original preparation materials, sketches, visuals and unused ideas shown and considered will remain the property of BLURRD studio. I am free to use these unused and previous ideas for future conceptual and client work. Where a previously unused idea/design retains a similar look and style to the finished logo, I shall repurpose and style so that the end design is sufficiently different as to not cause conflict.Unless otherwise agreed and arranged, I reserve the right to showcase the finished logo and associated designs in my portfolio and in any number of online galleries/portfolio/showcases/awards as well as in printed literature including books and magazines, now and in the future. Associated designs and artwork can include commercial print design/business card/stationery design/signage/desktop icons/mobile phone and other portable device application icons and imagery. ANY supporting artwork and designs required by this project can be used as indicated by myself for personal and professional reasons.You are free to change, modify and adapt the finished logo design as you see fit, but you do so at your own risk.


Cancellation during the project
If you choose to cancel the project midway through, where ideas and proposals have been submitted, refund of previous payment is not possible. However, depending on the work completed and overall budget, a portion of the funds may be returned. If I fall ill, or am unable to complete the project due to unforeseen circumstances, a portion of the overall budget will be returned. In most cases the complete amount will be refunded. If any works, so far completed, can be used for another designer to pick up, then a percentage will be refunded based on work completed or any other reasonable suggestion will be considered.

Project Suspension
I reserve the right to suspend any project if there is interference with excessive micromanaging, demonstrating a continued lack of trust and inability to move forward after showing more than a reasonable number of unique logo, website, and/or app ideas/concepts/revisions, and/or showing a reluctance in paying the final payment. Fair notice via email will be given with fair chance to remedy the situation without resorting to project suspension or termination. Any suspension, or termination, will not result in any refunds and all designs and work thus developed remain the full ownership of BLURRD studio.

Force Majeure
In the event I fail to perform any obligation pursuant to these Terms of Service due to an “act of God” or an act of any government, terrorism, riot, war, accident or any deficiency in materials or transportation or any other cause of any nature beyond my control, such failure shall not be deemed to be a breach of these Terms of Service, provided that you are notified of the existence and nature of the reason for my non-performance and delay, and I resume performance immediately upon the conclusion of the relevant force majeure.


Ownership of materials, sketches, visuals, mock ups, including files.
All preparation materials, sketches, visuals, including the electronic files used to create the project remain the property of BLURRD studio. The final artwork/digital files will become your property ONLY upon final payment of the project. If final payment is NOT received as agreed, all designs, files, and concepts will remain the property of BLURRD studio until payment is received.If there are issues with final payment, I reserve the right to reuse or amend any of these ideas for other clients, or to be used freely as concepts in my portfolio. Should the client attempt to use/modify/alter/replicate or steal any of my ideas without making agreed final payment, I will take immediate legal counsel. BLURRD studio reserves the right to show any artwork, ideas, sketches created for this project in a portfolio as examples of client work. This is typically, but not limited to the completion of the project. If you have any specific ‘secrecy/stealth mode’ or NDA requirements, please mention this before agreeing to the proposal. Final payment ensures that ONLY the agreed assets, design(s) and files becomes your property. Any previous ideas/concepts remain mine, unless any prior agreement has been made.
