The Process, Services and Pricing
The Sazerelli Process
This process highlights the different stages involved with working with Sazerelli Designs. The aim is to be on brief, on budget and on time.
The nitty gritty details
|Enquiry||If you are looking for some new prints or patterns, get in touch! You can send me an email at email@example.com. I can give you access to my full portfolio and can discuss your design needs.|
|Brief||If you don’t want to look through the full portfolio, I can curate a selection of designs that would be suitable for the look and feel of what you require. If you would like to commission a custom design, you can provide more details as to your requirements.|
|Quote||My fees vary depending on a number of factors such as the type of license, the length of the license and the exclusivity requirements or if a buyout is required (more below).|
|Contract||Dot the i’s and cross the t’s, to ensure both parties are clear on the deliverables and terms. I will provide an agreement with all the details of the terms and conditions.|
|Design||If you choose an exisiting design, the scale, colours, colour profile can be adjusted to your product requirements as part of the design fee. If you choose a custom design this is where the whole design process from sketching to final design takes place.|
|Payment||Full payment is required before the final files are provided.|
|Delivery||Once payment has been received, the final files will be shared with you.|
|Share||It’s time for the launch. I would love to share the collaboration on socials, blog and my newletters, so if you have any images you would like to share, please do.|
Licensing is like renting the artwork. The copyright remains with Sazerelli Designs and a contract is created, defining where (location specific), what for (how many products) and for how long the designs can be used for.
|Fully Exclusive||this means the design and motifs are exclusive to your brand/world wide for a defined amount of time.|
|Partially Exclusive||this means the design and motifs are exclusive to your product category/country for a defined amount of time|
|Non – Exclusive||this means that the designs can be licensed across multiple brands and categories.|
Licensing agreements are set for a specific amount of time, and can be repurchased at the end of a contact if required.
Buyout is when the design and motifs are exclusively purchased for your brand, and are then owned by you. This is obviously at a higher cost that licensing.
Looking for something in particular? You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with some information on what you are looking for including –
- How many designs are required
- Specifications – ie size requirements, colour mode, colour limitations
- A description on the type of pattern required and inspiration or references.
From there, I will pull together a quote and a contract and more details around the process, revisions and how the artwork will be delivered. The artwork can be purchased as a licence or buy out.
Pricing is depending on a number of factors such as the complexity of the pattern, the type or licence (exclusive, non exclusive or buy out) and the length of time and number of products the design is being used for. The more complex the pattern, the more expensive the quote. I generally group patterns into 3 categories, see examples below –
Simple (for example a spot, stripe or simple motif or layout)
Secondary (single detailed motif or more complex design with 2-4 motifs)
Complex (3+ motifs/more detailed)
