How work happens


We will do everything we can to supply the Services to you in accordance with this Agreement, and in a professional and diligent manner.

We will make sure you know how and when work will happen and give you time to provide feedback and direction.

We’ll do our best to follow any direction given by you, as long as it is reasonable and consistent with this Agreement. You’ll do your best to give us due notice if something changes that would impact the Services that we deliver to you.

You’ll provide the information, assets and materials we need to get the work done.

Any notice required to be given under this Agreement by any party must be in writing, electronically or otherwise, and addressed to the other party’s last known contact address.

Changes and feedback

From time to time, you’ll be asked to provide feedback and guidance. We’ll do our best to give you adequate time to provide feedback, and you’ll do your best to reply in a timely manner.

As much as possible, we ask for feedback to come through a single designated contact person.

All changes must be supplied in writing, via email.

While all due care and skill is taken, it is your responsibility to approve and proofread all final designs, type, content and sites. You agree to take responsibility for your content, to make sure that it correctly represents you and your business.

We don’t take responsibility for printing errors after approval. Reprints and changes will be made at your expense.

Once the work is done, we’ll let you know. If for any reason we don’t hear back from you within 21 days, we’ll take your lack of communication as acceptance and approval of the Services. We’ll consider our work together complete and provide you an invoice for any outstanding amounts (as per the Payment section of this Agreement).


When you provide information to us, you agree that it is accurate, and that you have the right to the Intellectual Property (IP) and use of that information. You must indemnify us from and against all loss, damage, costs and expenses that we may suffer or incur as a result of or in connection with any consequent breach.

We retain ownership of all creative work (and associated IP) until all payments have been finalised. After that, you have ownership of all final work products.

We retain the right to use the final work products, within printed and online portfolios, including promotional materials such as newsletters and advertisements. That said, we’ll always ask your permission first, and will be mindful to not breach any confidentiality.

It is your responsibility to copyright any logo design and/or trademark created through our work together.


“Your Confidential Information” means information relating to you that:

is by its nature confidential;

is designated by you as confidential; or

we know is confidential, but not information that:

is or becomes public knowledge otherwise than by a breach of this Agreement or another confidentiality obligation; or

we establish has been independently developed or acquired by us.

We take your confidential information seriously. We’ll do our best to keep our confidential information safe, but if you have any questions, you can refer to our Privacy Policy on our website.

We’ll only use your confidential information if we need to in order to provide Services to you.

We (and any subcontractors we engage) agree that we will not at any time disclose any of your confidential information to any third party without first obtaining your prior written consent.

You agree not to disclose the terms of this Agreement or details of our Charges with other persons, unless with our prior express permission.


All references to dollars or $ in this document or the Proposal refer to Australian Dollars. Before we start work, we’ll make sure we discuss all Charges with you.
