RAW Design Studios strives to meet realisticalistic deadlines set and agreed upon through clear communication with the Client, but turnaround always varies from project to project. The amount of time the Client takes to review a proof prior to requesting a revision or approving final artwork can and will greatly affect turnaround time. Excessive review time will alter agreed upon deadlines. If the Client has not provided text, photos, or any other content necessary for the completion of a design project within 15 days of delivery of the first design concept, the project will be canceled and subject to the conditions set forth in this document regarding canceled work.
A revision is any change whatsoever to a concept or design once it is presented. RAW Design Studios encourages the Client to deliver accurate feedback on a design (Feedback must be received within 7 days, from the presentation date of the concept or design). However, excessive review time will alter agreed upon deadlines. If RAW Design Studios is unable to contact the Client and the Client does not contact RAW Design Studios via e-mail within 7 days after a concept or revised layout has been presented, then the project will be canceled and subject to the conditions set forth in this document regarding canceled work. In this instance, the initial deposit of 50% will not be refunded. All revision requests must be submitted via e-mail. Although the client is welcome to request revisions over the phone, RAW Design Studios cannot guarantee accuracy of revisions unless the Client requests them via e-mail.
RAW Design Studios will not take responsibility for any copy or design errors committed and or lack of review on the part of the Client. The Client is encouraged to proofread ALL artwork carefully.
