Branding Agreement

This contract is to signify that Spade Designs will reserve the rights and be the sole owner of all work (designs created by Spade Designs) designed by Spade Designs for the client.

The transfer of ownership to the client is only valid after full payment for goods have been made. After full payment is made, all rights and ownership of the work created by Spade Designs for the client will be transferred over to the client, and the client will be the sole owner of the work created by Spade Designs for the client.

Payment must be made in two instalments of 50% each of the agreed price. The first instalment is due prior to the commencement of any work to be carried out by Spade Designs. The second instalment will be due upon the successful completion of the project, however, prior to Spade Designs sending out the brand package to the client. Both the first and second instalments are each non-refundable.

All revisions are free prior to the successful completion of the project. Once the project is complete, and the brand package has been sent out, if there is a revision that needs to be made, a $50.00 charge per revision will apply as well as an additional $150.00 charge to re-package and re-send the brand package.

The turnaround time to present the created brand identity(ies) is a maximum of two weeks, but, it can be sooner. Upon successful completion of the project, a brand package will be sent to the client containing all variations of the logo along with the brand's color(s), the brand's font(s), a font installation text file, and lastly all related stationery print files. A written approval from the client to Spade Designs indicating the satisfaction on the part of the client toward the work designed by Spade Designs, will both signify and solidify the successful completion of the project. Within the brand package will be both a CMYK folder along with a RGB folder. Each of these folders will contain all the color variations of the designed logo in svg (vector) format, png format, and jpg format.

Spade Designs ensures that, except for anything that was given by the client to incorporate into the design(s): (a) Spade Designs’ work will be original and will not be copied in whole or in part from any other work; (b) Spade Designs owns the rights that will be given to the client under this agreement, or has secured such rights to any third-party content incorporated into the final design(s); and (c) this work does not violate the patent, copyright, trade secret or other property right of any person, firm or entity. Spade Designs promises that this agreement does not conflict with any other contract, agreement or understanding to which Spade Designs is a party.

All information provided to Spade Designs by the client (such as proprietary, technical, personal or business information), will not be disclosed to any third party except as may be required by a court or governmental authority.
