Fees. Designer’s hourly rate is $120 per each hour spent on Client’s Services over the allotted amount of time purchased. Designer makes reasonable efforts to edit Client’s designs in a tasteful and professional manner before delivery of Client’s final designs. If Client requests further edits after delivery of Client’s final designs, then Client agrees to pay Designer for any additional changes Designer makes at Designer’s hourly rate.

Intellectual Property

Copyright Ownership. Designer owns the copyright in any and all designs it creates pursuant to federal copyright law (Title 17, Chapter 2, §201-02, of the United States Code.), whether registered or unregistered. Any and all designs produced in connection with, or in the process of fulfilling this agreement, are expressly and solely owned by Designer to use in the reasonable course of business.

Non-exclusive License. Designer grants to Client a non-exclusive, worldwide license of designs produced with and for Client for commercial or personal use so long as Client provides Designer with attribution each time Client uses Designer’s property unless and until Designer assigns her copyright to Client. Designs will be deemed properly attributed to Designer when it would be obvious to any reasonable observer, reader or viewer that Nina Hendrick Design Company, LLC provided the design for Client’s use.

Prohibited Uses of Designs. Some uses of Designer’s property are expressly prohibited in order to maintain the integrity and quality of Designer’s reputation and work.

  • Any resale of the designs through direct or indirect means, including, but not limited to: selling the designs as stock designs; selling or allowing use of the designs by a third party such as a corporation or advertiser. 
  • Any illegal assignment of Designer’s work, such as allowing third party use of a design online or in print without attribution. 
  • Any use of designs, personally or otherwise, which does not include attribution to Nina Hendrick Design Company, LLC. 
  • Client expressly agrees not to produce derivative works of Designer’s property, such as, but not limited to, designs of a design, scans into a computer, unauthorized design collages or other works that incorporate a substantial portion of Designer’s property in a way that distorts or denigrates the design’s high resolution. 
  • Any use deemed unreasonable or defamatory, at the discretion of Designer.
  • Any retouched or further edits of designs that materially alters the composition of the design, such as by applying filters, changing the colors or other means of degradation, as determined by Designer.
  • Client will not purposefully try to hide or otherwise conceal attribution to Designer, such as by printing attribution in such small print or font that the source of the design is not readily apparent to the reasonable viewer

Artistic Release

Artistic Release. Client has spent a satisfactory amount of time reviewing Designer’s work and has a reasonable expectation that its services will produce a similar manner and style of aesthetic for Client. Designer will use reasonable efforts to ensure Client’s services are carried out in a style and manner consistent with Designer’s current portfolio and Designer will try to incorporate any suggestions Client makes. However, Client understands and agrees that:

  • Every client and project is different, with different tastes, budgets, and performance needs; and
  • Styling is a subjective art and Designer is an artist with a unique vision, with an ever-evolving style and technique; and
  • Designer will use his/her personal artistic judgment to create styled areas for Client, which may not include strict adherence to Client’s suggestions; and
  • Dissatisfaction with Designer’s aesthetic judgment or artistic ability are not valid reasons for termination of this Agreement or request of any monies returned.
  • Designer is an online interior styling & consultation service, providing recommendations to improve the look of your space, and not intended for construction purposes.
  • Designer will not be responsible for any construction, fabrication, delivery, installation, or safety precautions in connection with the project; nor will Designer be responsible for arranging repairs, replacements, or freight claims for purchases made in connection with design recommendations.

Limit of Liability

Loss of Designs. In the rare event that any or all designs are lost, such as damage to the computer or equipment, stolen computer or equipment or damaged film rolls, Designer shall refund Client the corresponding percentage of lost designs. For example, if 30% of the original designs taken are lost, Designer shall refund 30% of the Total Cost.

Client agrees to either secure a reasonable amount of insurance coverage to pay for any claims, causes of action, damage, attorney fees or other losses as a result of accident or negligence on behalf of the Parties to this Agreement, or if no insurance is secured, Client waives its right to directly or indirectly ask or force Designer to pay for any such damages.

Relationship of the Parties. Designer and any related sub-contractors are not employees, partners or members of Client’s company or organization. Designer has the sole right to control and direct the means, manner and method by which the Services in this Agreement are performed. Designer has the right to hire assistants, subcontractors or employees to provide Client with its Services.
