Client – means the person or persons with the purpose of requiring Mystery Hares services.

Creative Brief – refers to communication by the client for the production of a variety of useful deliverables. It serves as the foundation to any successful campaign. It outlines the clients’ vision and ensures everyone is on the same page.

Discovery – refers to the period of research and preparation and normally means gathering as much information as possible about the client, their business,  competitors and users. This knowledge supports the project laid out in the creative brief.

Alterations, Amends, Revisions – these are an important stage of the design process. They clarify misunderstanding and move the job closer to the best end result. The estimate given covers up to 5 rounds of revisions. Amends/rounds of revisions above the stipulated amount are subject to further charges.

Deliverables – are the services and work produced by the designer to the client in the form and media specified within the invoice.

Copyright – is a law that gives the owner of a work the right to say how other people can use it. The work can only be used if the owner gives permission. Payment for the work done automatically transfers copyright onto the client. This will be confirmed with written authority stated within the receipt of final funds received.

Scope of Work

You, the client, agrees to provide a detailed project brief, including specifications, deadlines and expectations. The graphic design services will be executed based on this agreed-upon scope of work. This will be relayed back to you in a briefing sheet which must be agreed before work is started. Any scope creep will be assessed and the quote for the work updated to reflect the increased work.

Payment Terms

  • Discovery Phase: A non-refundable deposit of 50% is required before the project is started. This confirms the booking and covers the discover and research phase of the project

  • Design Phase: A further 25% of the project is due halfway through the project, you will be updated when this will be as each project schedule is varied

  • Finalisation Phase: The remaining balance is due prior to completion / delivery of the final design. Access to website or access to final design will be provided upon final payment. Copyright is automatically transferred to you, the client, upon final payment – until then copyright remains with Mystery Hare Ltd. You may not share work without the expressed permission of Mystery Hare Ltd until full payment for the project has been received (see below for more details around Intellectual Property regulations).

  • Payments are required the same day as invoiced unless agreed otherwise.

  • Late payments may incur an additional fee of  2% interest per month on the outstanding payment

Project Timelines

  • Both parties agree to adhere to the agreed project timeline

  • Delays caused by the client, including late feedback or additional requests, will extend the project timeline

  • Mystery Hare Ltd works with a multitude of clients who all have work scheduled into the studio, delays caused by you, the client might mean work is delayed by weeks rather than days due to scheduling issues for studio work. We try to work with as much buffer time as possible but during busy periods this is just not possible

  • Please be respectful of the work schedule

  • We endeavour to meet your required deadline as much as possible


  • You, the client are entitled to 3 rounds of revisions. Additional revisions beyond this limit may incur extra charges and possible delays to the project timeline

  • Major revisions requiring a change in the original project scope may result in additional fees and delays to the project timeline and will require updating the original quote to represent the scope change

Intellectual Property

  • Upon full payment, you, the client owns the rights to the final designs for the intended purpose outlined in the project brief

  • Mystery Hare Ltd retains the right to display the work in our portfolio and marketing materials


Both parties agree to keep confidential any proprietary or sensitive information shared during the project.

Termination of Services

  • Either party may terminate the project if the other party breaches the terms of this agreement

  • In the event of termination, the client will pay for all services provided up to the termination date


The designer is not liable for any consequential, indirect, or incidental damages arising out of the use or inability to use the delivered designs. Neither party shall be liable for any failure or delay in performance due to circumstances beyond their reasonable control.


Communication will primarily occur via and a dedicated asana project management board for a specific project, depending on client preference. Timely responses are crucial for the efficient progress of the project.
