Your use of the work (Licence)
Fees paid are for a license with lifetime rights to use my artwork. If you wish to own the full rights, please contact me regarding the extended licensing fee. If you sign with a publisher and they would like to use any part of the artwork or its design elements, they will need to contact me regarding this. You can use any of my artwork supplied to you for promotion on print, web, and merchandise, but you cannot sell the artwork, or promote it as your own.
I (Ben Ellis, Tall Story) can use the artwork I have created for you for my own promotions in web or print, but cannot resell the design. I will do my absolute best to be aware of any reveal of your designs and will not post to social media or my website regarding the project until you have made your announcement. @tallstorydesigns (business name is simply "Tall Story", no designs) should be tagged in your posts on social media and Tall Story credited with creation.
In the event of termination of this agreement or lack of payment, I own the design and reserve the right to complete, exhibit, and/or re-sell the design (but not your business name) if I choose. I own all design concepts (and actual images) created during the project. You are not authorised to alter the final artwork in any way, with the exception of changes in colour and size for printing and/or digital display. If you would like any alterations, please consult me. I would like the option to make alterations to my own work where possible. It may require additional payment to make these alterations. All the artwork is owned by Ben Ellis and Tall Story, is protected by copyright law, and is bound by the worldwide laws in force. No title to or intellectual property rights to the artwork is transferred to you. Ben Ellis and Tall Story retains all rights not expressly granted by this License Agreement. This License Agreement does not grant you any intellectual property rights. Unpublished rights are reserved.

Payment is to be received upon agreement of final look, please visit the Services and Pricing section of my website for exact figures, and please have your payment ready to go for your booking. Late payment may result in a termination of service and/or withholding of the artwork indefinitely. All payments to be made via PayPal or direct deposit. Please contact me for additional information.
