GRAPHICS & DESIGN
- Concepts will be developed only after SCHOOL submits deadline, style inspiration. Inspiration includes: past popular styles, style guidelines, typefaces, colors, themes, etc.
- Any limitations to our creative freedom must be mentioned before we create the first round of mockups.
- FIRST ROUND OF OFFERINGS
- 1st round is developed from the SCHOOL’s submitted style guidelines, criteria, requests, and inspiration. The final style of garments can be later decided after graphics are approved.
- SCHOOL is expected to present UPLIFTER’s first round of offerings to any board, committee, or decision maker involved in approving the SCHOOL’s offerings.
- SCHOOL’S FEEDBACK ON GRAPHICS
- At this time the SCHOOL is responsible for ensuring all graphics are up to the school's criteria & guidelines and communicating with UPLIFTERS to make changes on offerings.
- SECOND ROUND OF GRAPHICS (including feedback)
- 2nd round’s purpose is to finalize graphics and garments the graphics should live on. At this time all desired garments should be discussed for UPLIFTERS to create the final offerings for SCHOOL’s collection.
- THIRD ROUND OF MOCKUPS (if necessary)
- 3rd round is intended for final approval including all feedback thus far. At this time SCHOOL must confirm the final graphic direction and garments for approval.
- If at this time SCHOOL requests more changes to artwork, UPLIFTERS charges changes at $85 / hour.
- Samples can be made available at the SCHOOL’s request and are released by UPLIFTERS only after taking a credit card on file.
