Changes and Additions

Any changes request by the client after final approval, agreed upon completion date or specified rounds of changes will be subject to additional charges.

The client agrees to accept responsibility for all work completed prior to written notice of cancellation being received by Red Pepper Creative.

Guarantees

Reputable marketers and creative agencies do not gaurantee results. If you see those types of promises (“double your business in 2 months”), you’ll typically find a company that is inexperienced, shady, or has a lot of sneaky fine print hiding somewhere. Due constantly changing marketplace conditions, competitor strategies and the economy overall, a marketer can no more guarantee the results of a campaign than predict the weather. Our job is to help clients create brands, websites, ads and collateral materials that resonate with their target audience(s), and then help them get those items it in front of the people most likely to respond to them. We work to maximize the chances of good results by communicating with our clients, using research strategically, and relying on our many years of experience in this industry.

Payment of Fees

Timing of fees, deposits and invoices depends on the scope of work and payment terms are outlined by project on the invoice and/or estimate.

Impossibility of Performance

The client further guarantees that Red Pepper Creative will be held harmless, be protected from, and be defended from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.
