Jungle Design Studios does not handover Indesign, Photoshop, Illustrator or any source files or fonts or originals of illustrations. We will supply final flattened, printable or distributable files for the client to use. The intellectual property that we have developed in setting up files is not part of the sale, hence we do not hand over source files. Jungle Design Studios retains intellectual property rights over all files except the *final artwork.
Until full payment has been made, Jungle Design Studios retains ownership of all original artwork or parts contained therein (other than material supplied by the client), whether preliminary or final. Once a final concept is delivered to a client and full payment is received the final artwork files* will be transferred to the client and they will retain usage and ownership for purposes outlined in the project invoice only for the purposes in which it was created. Any other usage not discussed will need to be negotiated.
*Final artwork indicates the final artwork as a whole. Client does not have rights to use, modify or distribute any individual elements, ie; photos, illustrations etc. or to modify and resell this artwork.
This granting of copyright does not extend to the use of design proposals and concepts submitted to but not approved for the work outlined.
