Re: More on client logo design pricing and deposits -
"I only invoke the "holding deposit" if the project is some weeks/months away from actually being started. This way I can get a small holding deposit that just gives me more peace of mind that they are committed. Sometimes in this waiting period clients 'could' find someone else which could leave you in spot of bother; especially if you have subsequently turned down other work in this time. I usually only ask for around £200 as this holding deposit which is not such an unreasonable amount to ask when you are no where close to starting the project. When the time is ready to start I then send over the next invoice which is just a variation of the 3-part method minus the previously paid £200. Seems to work really well." - ImJustCreative
