Getting Started

last updated on September 24, 2020

Here's the 101 before taking the plunge.

Typically, designers and developers are sought on a per-project basis with different key people working on a different timeline. This all further depends on a per-needed budget- all without a continuity of expertise and rapport of trust. Further, a full-time design agency also offers retainer agreements with specific hours on a monthly basis depending on the packages you choose.

Either case, I do not recommend that. I work on a set of deliverables basing on how many projects we can accomplish each month to reach your goals. We will agree to focus on what has to be done rather than how much each project and how many hours per month is done. Most importantly, you only need to talk to one person who will take care of your visual requirements, making a consistent voice to your business’ marketing tools.

General Process

what happens next

Initial Consultation

We will setup a consultation so I can hear more about your business and get to know each other. We’ll talk about your business needs and upcoming projects.

Paperwork and Payment

Once the paperwork (Agreement) is completed and the first retainer fee is paid, I will begin working for the projects. Payment for the month ahead will be due on the first day of each month.


Prior to the upcoming month, we will have a meeting (e.g. conference call or video chat) to review next month’s priorities. We will always repeat this process to keep coordinated.

Scope of Service

what we do and what we don’t do

Operating Hours

My actual work schedule is at night time, Philippine Timezone GMT+8. You can contact me anytime and I will do my best to answer even outside working hours.

I don’t work on weekends as I go out to see the world, attending seminars to learn new things, practicing new technologies, getting inspired or collecting fragments of creativity.

Abeyance and Termination

how services are suspended

An automated billing will be generated and sent out every 23rd of the month with invoice due on 1st day of succeeding month. Services will be suspended for overdue of seven (7) calendar days and account shall be terminated [with prior notice] for overdue of thirty (30) calendar days.

Who owns the rights to the designs

you get the full ownership of all files created

All designs are made for you and you have 100% ownership of all the files created.

If we use stock photos, you have extended license to that photo as part of our subscription. However, materials you provide are assumed to be licensed and owned by you. If you provide us with unlicensed materials to use, we are not held liable for the rights of the final design.

Files are stored and secured to premium cloud subscriptions at Microsoft OneDrive and Google One. Once the subscription has ended, the designer will remove working files and only retain final project renders. Partners will still have access to their high resolution materials for two months.
