    In my freelance work, the contract is pretty clear about what the client is buying. If the contract says that the deliverables are one trifold brochure file delivered to a printer, that's exactly what...

    Unused designs - who owns them?
    EmberMike
    I've worked under the assumption that everything I do while on a client project belongs to the client. If I'm on the clock for them, what I do is theirs.

    That said, rarely do I ever have...

    Reply to Waiting to get paid, how long should I wait?
    EmberMike
    Two-and-a-half weeks is not a long time to wait. I've recently had to wait 70 days for a payment, and at worst I've had a client who regularly took 120 days to pay. My contracts and invoices say Net 45,...

  • Design brief questions...

    So I have a meeting with a client to design their logo for a small software company. Thats pretty much all I have to go off of right now. This is actually a collaborative effort. My buddy knows more about the client than I do. Anyways what are some general questions to ask and what are some questions not to ask? Here are some questions that I have so far, not in any particular order.

    What does the company do exactly?
    What message do you want to convey?
    How do you want your business to be perceived?
    Why should your business be perceived this way?
    What is your long/short term goals?
    What demographic?
    Target Audience?
    Accessibility?
    What is your current clients view?
    How well recognized is your current logo?
    Any specific elements you would like to retain from the previous logo? ie. color?

    And curious if there is any no no questions that could get us roped into a sticky situation? Thanks a bunch guys.

    What colours do you like?
    What colours do you hate?
    Who are your competition?
