Rules for design projects

Brandpa allows some designers and sellers to work together on logos for their domains. Both parties are expected to follow the following rules, or they may be barred from using Brandpa.

  1. Your conversations may be read and monitored by Brandpa at any time to enforce the following rules.
  2. You must treat each other courteously and with respect. Criticism of work is fine, but attacking other people is not.
  3. Threats, sexual advances, and racially offensive language will result in a permanent ban from Brandpa.
  4. Designers are only expected to complete the design project that they have accepted. Sellers cannot ask them to complete additional work within that project.
  5. Sellers are expected to provide reasonable and timely feedback to sellers designs and questions.
  6. Sellers can ask for three rounds of revisions. Asking for more is at the discretion of the designer. If a designer believes that the seller is being unreasonably demanding, they can ask Brandpa to join the conversation by clicking the “Request help” button.
  7. If a seller believes a designer is not understanding their requirements, or providing a sufficiently good logo design, they can ask Brandpa to join the conversation by clicking the “Request help” button.
  8. Our designers are currently paid $5 per logo. Sellers acknowledge that this does not entitle them to an undue amount of labour by the designer. If either party has concerns about this, they may ask Brandpa to join the conversation by clicking the “Request help” button.
  9. Designers are expected to complete their designs within the available time (stated at the start of the project), or forgo payment for the project.
  10. Both sellers and designers are asked to rate each other at the end of the design process. Brandpa monitor these ratings and may use them to investigate and potentially bar users who demonstrate consistently low satisfaction with other parties.
  11. The copyright for all designs made by this system is owned by the designer, until a design is approved and final assets provided by the designer. At that point the copyright for the approved design is transferred to Brandpa. The seller cannot use or resell designs completed by the designer (nor they can use the approved logos in the personal portfolios). When a domain is purchased on Brandpa, the copyright for the logo is transferred from Brandpa to the domain’s new owner.
