The fine print

Some important info about how we work around here.

Accepting an Agreement, Quote or Contract

These terms and conditions are part of our engagement process with any business and irrespective of job size or scale. We assume that by accepting an agreement, quote or contract you have read these terms and conditions in full, as set out below.

By accepting an agreement, quote or contract via email or deposit confirmation you are agreeing to the services as outlined in the Project Scope and description of deliverables in Services & Fees. You agree to pay for all of the provided services, and agree to these terms and conditions.


As we sell our expertise and measure its consumption by time, unless you have made other arrangements, please expect to be billed for time spent sat down with a Project Manager, Designer or Web Developer from the thewarehouseproject team. All our clients are billed in 15 minute increments to ensure they are only billed for the work we have done. An initial discovery meeting to discuss the potential work required for a new client will not be billed. No work will be commenced without a signed quote, or written confirmation such as email.

Account Management

Travel time is not billed, unless it is outside of South-East Queensland and then it will be billed at 50% of our agreed hourly rate. Hard travel costs will be billed to the client at cost. Unless otherwise stated, meeting hours will be billed as account management hours. Unless otherwise agreed, if there are two members or more from thewarehouseproject attending these meetings, both their respective time will be billed.

Where the client terminates a monthly hours agreement there will be no refund for unused hours that have been paid for upfront. Where thewarehouseproject terminates the contract, unused hours will be refunded within 30 days.


As part of our proposition we aim to get all client work done in the time-frame requested. We are often faced with ‘ASAP’ request from clients, which impacts our work by delaying other client projects, where possible, in order to meet the ‘ASAP’ deadline. Although we are committed to turning around work as quickly as you need it, the more notice we can get the better, to allow us to plan projects effectively around pre-identified timescales. In all cases, if we are unable to do your job when requested, we will let you know immediately.

Graphic Design

All our quotes incorporate ONE set of minor changes to the final artwork we produce. This can include colours, positioning, styling, images, fonts and so on. Major changes to design work will cost additional time billed in 15-minute increments at 100% of the agreed hourly rate. Should thewarehouseproject be engaged to integrate stock images into any design, sourcing these images will incur an additional cost if not included in the original quote or invoice.

Web Design

Unlike traditional design, web design requires a much more linear approach to time usage. This means that frequently changes cannot be made until other areas are finalised, and some aspects cannot be started until other aspects are finished. This can cause projects to go past expected completion dates more frequently than in other areas. If you have a specific deadline for your project, then please make your Project Manager aware of this at the commencement of the work so that we can endeavour to have your project completed in time.

E-News & Email Signatures

There are industry-wide known issues with HTML newsletter compatibility with several mail clients such as MS Outlook 2007, MS Outlook 2010, MS Outlook 2017 and Gmail through some web browsers. There may be issues with other email clients that we can’t anticipate, as every email client deals with HTML code in different ways and frequently email clients make changes without notifying the industry.

We will design a template that should overcome these issues however we can’t guarantee it. We will run a design test to identify these issues and then if you require us to re-do a design due to compatibility issues it will be charged on an hourly basis.

All e-news are subject to a variable send charge, plus an agreed fee per individual email.


For small print jobs, thewarehouseproject will deliver a sole quote through our nominated supplier, which may or may not consist of a written quote or email correspondence. For larger print jobs, thewarehouseproject source two quotes from our nominated suppliers. All printing requires payment up front before any job is released. Whilst we endeavour to deliver high quality printing, and are confident of print outcomes, we cannot guarantee quality or timescales.


thewarehouseproject can offer copywriting services for brochures, digital and advertising charged at our agreed hourly rate. We can also ensure that any digital copywriting adheres to search engine optimisation guides. For larger more complex jobs, this may be outsourced according to client requirements and preferences.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

Because SEO is a constantly shifting landscape, the SEO work we do aims to keep up to date and you informed about your performance, and the changes we will need to undertake. We aim for the highest level or results, but we do not guarantee specific results through our services – me merely target them and do our upmost to achieve a good result for you.

Keyword optimisation only guarantees that your website will be indexed under your target keyword, it does not guarantee first page or top of page results. We want to be clear that if you want to be found under a keyword search competitively, your website content must clearly focus on the terms you wish to be found under – you won’t be found on Google because you just have a website.


All artwork and IP remain the property of thewarehouseproject until all bills and invoices are finalised in full, at which point full ownership and IP reverts to the client. thewarehouseproject may use your artwork, samples of your artwork or variations on your artwork for promotion or presentation of company marketing. If you do not want your artwork to be used for these purposes, please let us know.
