  • 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.

            It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

            I would certainly have a clause...

            CS6 is perfectly serviceable. As long as you aren't taking files from outside clients.
            Print vendors don't care. They might care if it's CS5 or 5.5 but 6 is just fine. At least for the next couple...

            Just addressing the CS6 vs CC issue, I'm actually still using CS6 for most things. Even though my workplace pays for a CC subscription for me, more often than not, I'll use CS6. That said, it's getting...

            I realize you've said your plan is to just have an "Etsy shop selling clip art or party theme stuff" but I think you may be getting ahead of yourself a tiny bit. Forgive me if you have already...
