Design IP Policy

Spirit Graphics owns the Intellectual Property to all design work created and all resources used to create the design work.

Native files are generally not turned over to the Client. However, if required, a flat rate release fee of $350+GST per document applies to all requests for native files and packaging of  embedded links. Spirit Graphics reserve the right to change this cost at any time. Files will be release upon receipt of payment.

Australian Law on IP Created by Contractors

Contractors (including advisors and consultants) are often engaged to create a wide variety of new materials, including business plans, marketing plans, training manuals, information manuals, technical guides, software, websites, designs, drawings, research reports, databases and logos for an advertising campaign.

Both parties (hirer and contractor) should take care when entering into an agreement to adequately address the ownership of IP. For example, if the contractor presents a number of distinct designs or logos, and the company accepts only one, then who owns the IP rights over the remaining options?

If you wish to own the source files to any artwork/design work produced by Spirit Graphics please request an agreement in writing before work commences. Where a source file is requested without an agreement Spirit Graphics will quote a release fee and advise what source file are available. Availability of a native/source file remains at the discretion of Spirit Graphics until such written agreement between the client and Spirit Graphics takes place.

In Australia, the IP created by a contractor is by law considered the property of the contractor unless otherwise stated in the contract.

Graphics Design Time Billing

In order to ensure transparency and clarity in our billing process, we would like to bring to your attention our minimum charge policy.

As of [January 1st 2023], we have implemented a one-hour minimum charge for all graphic design and website design services provided by our team. This minimum charge covers the time spent on various aspects of the design process, including but not limited to:

  • Design Time: This encompasses the actual creation and manipulation of design elements using Adobe programs.
  • Communication Time: This includes the time spent in email correspondences and discussions with the client, both preceding and following the clock turnover in our Adobe programs.
  • Brainstorming: We allocate time for creative brainstorming sessions to ensure the development of innovative and effective design solutions.
  • Negotiations: Time spent in negotiations with the client regarding design concepts, revisions, and any other pertinent discussions is factored into the overall design time.
  • File Saving: The process of saving and organising design files is included in the minimum charge to uphold the integrity and accessibility of project assets.

We believe that this policy will provide a comprehensive understanding of the value and effort invested in delivering high-quality design services. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or if you require further clarification regarding this policy.

The Spirit Graphics Team

Project dormancy

We understand that sometimes life happens, and you may need to pause work on your project with us and that is completely acceptable if we are notified and made aware of your situation.

If your project goes more than 60 days without any forward progress or significant activity from your end, and no prior arrangements have been made with us and agreed to, your project will become Dormant. This means we put the project on hold and all associated files will be archived. Once your project has been archived, a reactivation fee of $120 +GST is required restart your project.

If your project remains inactive for an additional 60 days past the 60-day dormancy period (120 days total) with no significant forward progress made, milestones reached, or prior arrangement in place, our engagement will expire, no refunds will be available, and you will forfeit all deliverables associated with this client agreement.

Client Cancellation

If, at any stage, the Client is not happy with the direction our work is taking, you’ll pay us in full for our time and for everything we have produced up to that point, as dictated by our records, and cancel the contract. Deposits paid are nonrefundable, regardless of when the project is cancelled.

Website Warranty

A 30 day warranty is included for websites created by Spirit Graphics, that begins the date the website is live. The warranty provides assurance that the website software will meet all functionality requirements as outlined in the scope of work and covers reported bugs (programming errors) that exist in the original codebase upon go-live. Bugs reported within the warranty period will be fixed at no additional charge.

We will not be held responsible for any user caused errors or those that arise from third party software, or circumstances outside our control. The internet is a fluid and rapidly changing environment so we are not responsible, for updating and adjusting approved/completed designs due to specification changes with any third party platforms such as social media platforms, WordPress plugin updates, your email marketing provider, etc.

Spirit Graphics does not warrant that the website will achieve any particular result or results.

Website Content

Unless otherwise agreed in writing, the Client will provide all written and illustrative content. You are responsible for proof reading and approval of all such content, and Spirit Graphics takes no responsibility for any factual, literal or grammatical errors which are published when the site goes live.

Copyrights and Ownership of Website Content

The Client guarantees that all elements of text, images, or other content it provides, are either owned by the Client, or that the Client has permission to use them.

When the final payment is made, copyright of the design, graphics, and other visual elements is transferred to the Client. You will also own all of the content, images, and media provided, unless someone else already owns them.

Portfolio Inclusion

We love to show off our work and share what we have created with other people. So we reserve the right, unless you specifically object, to display and link to your website as part of our portfolio and to write about it on websites, in articles, or make reference in any other marketing promotions.

Payment for Websites


A deposit amounting to 50% of the total quoted amount is required before work commences. An invoice for this will be issued upon acceptance of the quote.


The balance (remaining 50%) is due before the site goes live, or 60 days from the deposit payment, whichever comes first. An invoice for this will be issued in the days before it is due, so as to allow you time to process payment.
