About IndigoBright Creative
IndigoBright Creative, a sole trading company registered at 1 Clapcot Way, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8HS, United Kingdom (from now on referred to as “IndigoBright Creative” “I” “We” “Us”).
If you would like to contact IndigoBright Creative, you can do so at:
IndigoBright Creative, 1 Clapcot Way, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8HS, United Kingdom
By entering into an agreement with IndigoBright Creative, you warrant that you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts, and that you have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation.
What do both parties agree to?
You: You have the authority to enter into this contract on behalf of yourself, your company or your organisation. You’ll provide me with the assets and information I need to complete the project. You’ll do this when I ask and provide it in the formats I ask for. You’ll review our work, provide feedback and approval in a timely manner too. Deadlines work both ways, so you’ll also be bound by dates we set together. You also agree to stick to the payment schedule set out at the end of this contract.
IndigoBright Creative: I have the experience and ability to do everything I’ve agreed with you and I’ll do it all in a professional and timely manner. I’ll endeavour to meet each deadline that’s set and on top of that will maintain the confidentiality of everything you give me.
I will supply you with 2 major revisions to the suggested design, and then a reasonable number of minor revisions to the design, layout, colours, etc until you are satisfied with the design concept or such time as we both feel an agreement is likely to be reached. Additional revisions or design work outside the scope of the project will be charged separately.
You’ll have plenty of opportunities to review the work and provide feedback. I’ll either share a Dropbox, Google Drive folder or development site with you and we’ll have regular, possibly daily contact.
If, at any stage, you change your mind about what you want to be delivered and are not happy with the direction our work is taking you’ll pay me in full for the time I’ve spent working with you until that point and terminate this contract.
Unless agreed otherwise, you will be responsible for loading your own text and photos onto your web pages.
Graphics and photographs
You should supply graphic files in an editable, vector digital format. You should supply photographs in a high resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, I can suggest stock libraries. If you’d like me to search for photographs for you, I can provide a separate estimate for that.
Browser testing no longer means attempting to make a website look the same in browsers of different capabilities or on devices with different size screens. It does mean ensuring that a person’s experience of a design should be appropriate to the capabilities of a browser or device.
I test my work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), and Mozilla Firefox. I won’t test in other older browsers unless agreed separately. If you need an enhanced design for an older browser, I can provide a separate estimate for that.
Mobile browser testing
Mobile browser testing using popular smaller screen devices is essential in ensuring that a person’s experience of a design is appropriate to the capabilities of the device they’re using. I test designs in a variety of mobile devices and operating systems. If you have a specific requirement for mobile testing please let me know.
Search engine optimisation (SEO)
I don’t guarantee improvements to your website’s search engine ranking, but the web pages that I develop are accessible to search engines.
I cannot guarantee any improvement to a search engine ranking, nor can I promise to get a site higher up or to the ‘top of Google’, but I build every site in a way that is accessible to search engines in an effort to increase its chances.
Further changes to your website
If after completion of this project you wish to ask IndigoBright Creative to make further changes to your website, you can make your request via the website: https://indigobright.uk/contact
Your request will be scheduled, and charged at an hourly rate, which will be discussed with you prior to beginning work.
Changes and revisions
I don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind. The price at the beginning of this contract is based on the number of days/weeks that I estimate I’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told me you want to achieve, but I’m happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as I’ll provide a separate estimate for the additional work.
Web hosting is charged annually.
Your web hosting start date will be counted as the day your website holding page goes up or your website is put live – whichever is soonest.
