  • Mutual NDA?

    How many of you have ran across clients who were paranoid about their business marketing? I have a potential client who is needing a good deal of work both on the graphics side, as well as the marketing side.

    He is asking for a non-disclosure agreement, so that anything we create for him can't be used for another client in any way.

    I don't have a problem with something like this if we are dealing with a very unique process that is collectively developed, or something that can be definitively labled as "his", but how would you draw that line?

    I know he wants to keep his marketing plan and processes safe, and I understand. However, I don't want him to be able to tell me I can't use what I learn with future clients.

    I am getting that creepy feeling that usually means run. However, there is a good bit of money he is willing to pony up for us to create and develop marketing processes for him.

    We have historically been mainly a graphics shop, but with time, I am getting more clients like this that are willing to pay much more for the marketing alone.

    Well, you should be specific in the contract what "anything we create for him can't be used for another client in any way" means.

    Any "original artwork".

      Buda,

      I agree. I am hoping he will be reasonable and not come back later and claim weird stuff as his. If it is all spelled out in the contract, we should be OK. It still feels weird. Maybe this is why the marketing guys get paid the big bucks.

      I think I will give him all present and future rights to all page curls and lens flares.

          Yes, they can have all rights to all future starbursts. As well as all stock Illustrator gradients.

            I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

            Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

            On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

            It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
