Client Brand Sign Off

$14.00 USD

Ever had a client come back to you after a brand is complete wanting part of the design ‘tweaked’?

By using a brand sign-off form, your clients have to cross-check the final design and physically tick checkboxes approving the brand before signing that they wish to proceed.

These templates will keep your client accountable and make sure they understand the repercussions of further ‘tweaks’ to their project. It includes two different sign-offs:

  • Concept Sign Off: if I have a sneaking suspicion a client may be a wee bit flakey as the brand is getting developed, I get them to sign this form to approve the initial concept or moodboard direction. The sign-off helps them understand we are now locking down the brand concept direction, and any fundamental changes in the direction after this point will incur extra costs.
  • Brand sign off: I use this on every single brand project just before I create the brand pack and style guide or guidelines for the client. The client signs off the final brand, including logos, icons, supporting brand elements, colours and fonts. It ensures no last-minute changes of heart after the brand is finalised!

Hi, I’m Sarah!

I’m the admin geek who developed these templates over the last ten years in my graphic and web design biz.

I’ve been where you are. I spent years chasing my tail but knowing that if I just set my mind to it, my business life could be easier… could be better.

I’ve run my own graphic design business, Slinky Did It, for the last 10 years and have been lucky enough to score some big-name clients like the European Union and the ABC. But it wasn’t until I put some serious blood, sweat and tears into my design business systems, processes and communication that I actually started to reap the rewards of living the freelance dream!

I created Designer Admin to give other designers insider access to my project methodology and the shortcut I wish I had when setting up my systems and processes… the ability to plug and play someone else’s templates into my process!

So are you ready?
