Everything You Need To Know About How I Deliver All Of My Brand Strategy Services
The Money Bit
All Brand Strategy services are fully payable at the time of booking. This sum secures the prep & research time and ideation work. This is non-refundable or transferable in the event of any future cancellation, it being agreed loss suffered due to that cancellation. Cancellation less than 48hours before any creative event date will result in this deposit payment being with-held in full. All cancellations must be in writing. Strategic events and or workshops that are postponed to a later date will retain a fee and may be subject to additional fees to facilitate rescheduling.
Payment of 100% of your service is due at the time of booking. No strategic findings or documentation will be made available until full payment is received.
All prices are confirmed with you when signing your booking contract, but in the event that changes arise that are outside of our control, for instance, but not exclusively, the cost of additional Suppliers, Optional Extras, Travel and Subsistence, then you will be informed of such within 21 days of the change taking effect.
Laura Pearman Creative and any additional Creative Suppliers shall be granted an artistic licence in relation to the nuances of creative decisions not limited to Graphic Design, Illustration, Web Design Posing, Model Selection, Location Scouting, Layouts, Refined Communications. We will make the best effort to honour any requested nuancing but do not undertake any guarantee for any precise specifics especially when requests for sign-off have fallen outside of the project timeline.
Marketing & Retouching
At Laura Pearman Creative it is important to note that documenting "the how" and "Behind The Scenes" of all the work we do is a key pillar of our Marketing and content creation.
This means you will be invited to be a part of this at the beginning of your brand strategy project. Expressly denying this use is considered to be a gesture of goodwill, and in order to do this, you the client need to provide this in writing. Every effort to obtain your level of comfort throughout this content creation process will be made to ensure any final content does not reveal anything you would prefer to keep confidential.
Signing your service contract is also deemed as your agreement to Model Release for such use of Creative Content Creation. Should you wish to enter into any form of a non-disclosure agreement to prevent the display of your final work you need to request the terms of this new agreement be drawn up for you in addition to this agreement. This legal addition is subject to an admin fee.
