Logo and Graphic Element Design.

Print Email

Category: Services

 
Price Includes consultation by phone/email so I can get an idea of how this should look.
A general outline of style and reference materials. 
Within 72 hours you will receive an email with several mock-ups of the new logo.
You can pick the one that fits what you're looking for and make stylistic changes.
you have 5 free style changes. 
  
A cost estimate will be determined and the price set for a  finished Vector/Layered logo before the project begins. I make estimates based on how many hours I anticipate the project will take to design, collaborate, and makeup to 5 major design changes.  Typically logo designs cost between $200-$300
Hourly charges of $10 per hour are incurred past the change limit, If a project needs to be scrapped and completely redone, payment is still expected for work completed and a new contract will be written up.  
 
$50.00 required up front.and a signed contract.
 
Final high-resolution logo/Graphic delivered upon final payment, delivered as.PDF,  .PNG, .JPG, other formats available upon request.
 
 
 
 
 
 PARTIAL usage rights are included with the standard design fee. This partial-usage type limits the client use to the final deliverable work only, as it's intent was outlined in the contract. This does not allow the client/artist rights to make modifications, such as change colors, distort or crop an image, or to use my work as a basis to make new works. 
 
Partial usage rights are best for clients who only want one-off print materials, and logos they do not plan on using again, Like for a one-time event.  
 
IE: Materials designed to be printed are completed upon dilivery to the printer. Elements from that design are retained as the property of the artist.
 The rights granted to you are non-transferable and non-sublicensable, meaning that you cannot transfer or sublicense them to anyone else. 
There are two exceptions:
  • Employer or client. If you are purchasing on behalf of your employer or client, then your employer or client can use the content. In that case, you represent and warrant that you have the full legal authority to bind your employer or client to the terms of this agreement. If you do not have that authority, then your employer or client may not use the content.
  • Subcontractors. You may allow subcontractors (for example, your printer or mailing house) or distributors to use content in any production or distribution process related to your final project or end use. These subcontractors and distributors may not use the content for any other purpose.
 Restricted Uses.

  • No Unlawful Use. You may not use content in a pornographic, defamatory or another unlawful manner.
  • No Standalone File Use. You may not use content in any way that allows others to download, extract, or redistribute content as a standalone file (meaning just the content file itself, separate from the project or end use).
  • * This can be waved on a contract by contract basis for logo's that will be part of a marketing packet.
  • No False Representation of Authorship. You may not falsely represent that you are the original creator of a work that is made up largely of licensed content. For instance, you cannot create a painting based solely licensed content and claim that you are the author.
 
 

Full rights art transfers and transferred licensing of art start at $200.00 for the logo's/design elements after compensation for the time allotted to design and deliver the Artwork.  Full Rights transfers are on an exclusive use basis. This transfer includes the transfer of full usage of the art to be used as and distributed as a whole image.  Full Rights transfer files can be transferred to another artist to use for your business/project. 

Permissible usage of the whole element includes facebook/twitter banners and icons, printed marketing/advertising materials, letterheads, and business cards. Types  of applicable files to be included in  transfers are:

  • Files 300 DPI or higher
  • CMYK and RBG 
  • Layered.PSD 
  • .jpg (jpeg)
  • .tga (Targa)
  • .png 
  • .eps (encapsulated postscript)
  • .AI (Adobe Illustrator) 

When you purchase with full rights I will transfer you the entire original files so you can send them to another artist if I am not available in the future.

 

FULL rights are best for MOST logo design projects.

Clients who want a company logo must choose this because this allows you to use the logo repeatedly and mostly unrestricted.
