ADDITIONAL DETAILS

Billing:

I bill at an hourly rate of $100 per hour.

 

Proposed Costs:

A proposal is my best estimate for the cost of your project. While I'm pretty accurate with my prediction, the actual design hours may be more or less than proposed. If hours are approaching the proposed amount or your fixed budget, I will notify you to clearly communicate your project status and options.

Intellectual Property: 

Designs are created specifically for you. All "work product" (finished designs, mockups, drafts, notes, etc.) become your property as soon as payment is received in full and usage of the "work product" (reproduction, photography, printing, etc.) is determined by the client.

Portfolio Rights: 

Once your project is available for public consumption, Lauren McClone Design has portfolio rights to feature it on my website, social media, and other galleries for promotional purposes. I will not share any confidential or sensitive information.
