Quotes may be provided when the client provides a specific and detailed brief. Where a lump sum is negotiated, that figure shall be charged, except if there is a change to the nature or scope of the brief or the duration of the project.
When quoting, fees are calculated using a charge-out rate of $80.00 + GST per hour. Where work is commissioned on a time spent basis, fees are calculated using a charge-out rate of $60.00 + GST per hour. We record all time spent on projects and use increments of one-quarter of an hour to calculate the appropriate fee.
A handling charge of 10% may be charged on all goods (eg printing) and services (eg illustrations) purchased on behalf of clients and on all direct expenses incurred to execute the commissioned project.
1.1 Copyright in all designs, drawings, models, prototypes and specifications, and in the work executed from them, remain the property of the designer (Peter Lambert Design) unless otherwise agreed or as provided for in the Australian Copyright Act and until all due fees and expenses are paid.
1.2 The original designs, drawings, models, prototypes and specifications remain the property of the designer. They may not be used for any other purpose than that for which they were originally commissioned.
1.3 The client is permitted to retain copies of designs, drawings, models, prototypes and specifications for information but these may not be used by the client as the basis for modification to the original design, on other projects, for additional works to the original project, or for completion of the original commission by others, except by agreement in writing and with appropriate compensation to the designer.
Unless otherwise agreed, payment shall be made within 30 days of the date of invoice. Invoices are usually issued at the end of each month or at the end of each stage of the project.
Interest at 12% per annum may be charged on all overdue accounts, together with an administration fee of $5.00 per month overdue.
