Project Terms and Conditions

Statement of Work & Contract

DESIGN
We create look-and-feel design compositions and flexible layouts that adapt to the capabilities of many devices and screen sizes. We create designs iteratively and use predominantly HTML and CSS so we won’t waste time mocking up every template as a static visual. We may use static visuals to indicate a look-and-feel direction (colour, texture and typography.)

TEXT CONTENT
Writing text copy is not included, unless you have opted for our content service. If you’d like us to write new content or input text for you, we’re happy to provide this at additional cost.

PHOTOGRAPHS
You’ll need to supply graphic files (logos) to us in an editable, vector digital format. Photographs must be in a high-resolution digital format. If you choose to buy stock photographs, we can suggest stock libraries and style of photography/images. If you’d like us to search for photographs for you, we can provide a separate estimate for that. The cost of buying stock photographs or a photoshoot is not included.

HTML, CSS AND JAVASCRIPT
We deliver templates developed from HTML5 markup, CSS2.1 + 3 stylesheets for styling and unobtrusive Javascript for feature detection, poly-fills and behaviours.

Browser Testing

DESKTOP BROWSER TESTING
We test our work in current versions of major desktop browsers including those made by Apple (Safari), Google (Chrome), Microsoft (Edge), and Mozilla Firefox. We do not support Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows users as this is no longer supported by Microsoft.

MOBILE BROWSER TESTING
Testing popular small-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. We test our work in:
• iOS (latest version): Safari
• Android (latest version): Google Chrome, Firefox
We currently don’t test Blackberry OS or Blackberry QNX, Opera Mobile, Symbian or other mobile browsers. If you need us to test using these, we can provide a separate estimate for that.

CHANGES AND REVISIONS
We know from experience that fixed-price contracts are rarely beneficial to you, as they often limit you to your earliest ideas. We don’t want to limit your ability to change your mind or make decisions later when you might be better informed. The prices estimated at the beginning of our project contracts is based on the length of time we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate to cover the additional work.

ERRORS
We can’t guarantee that our work will be error-free (we’re only human!) so we can’t be liable to you or any third party for damages, including lost profits, lost savings or other incidental, consequential or special damages, even if you’ve advised us of them. We will do our utmost best to rectify any errors that we are at fault for.
