F.A.Q.

I WANT TO GET AN ARTWORK FROM YOU. CAN YOU HELP?

Of course I can and I’m here to provide you the best. However it is very important for me to have a clear view about your needs so when you’re going to email me please send me as many info as possible about your project and your ideas in case you have something particular in mind. I usually reply quite fast but if it takes few days please be patient.

WHAT'S YOUR RATES?

I believe that each artwork needs different approach and time of work so my prices are depending from your request and the difficulty of the project. For sure my rates are lower from other companies so do not worry so much. I have several offers to provide that normally cover multiple things so I could definitely say that in the end you will be more than happy with the result.

WHERE I CAN FIND ARTWORKS FOR SALE?

On this website there is a special section called “My Shop”. There you can see what’s available now. In case you’re interested to purchase something please contact with me via email and ask me for the price. Don’t forget to mention your band’s name and links of your music as well.

WHY TO BUY PREMADE AND NOT ASK YOU TO CREATE FOR ME A NEW ARTWORK?

Because my Premade artworks are ready for use and they usually cost less than starting something new. However, if you have a particular concept in mind we can always discuss about it and design something new. Regardless of this, the choice is always yours and I’m here to help you.

DO YOU HAVE COPYRIGHT TERMS?

Yes I have. My work and this website are protected so please do NOT use or try to steal anything for commercial/personal use without my permission. Many times people asked me to use my artworks for blogs, wallpapers and postcards but I don’t give permission to such things unless it’s a good business deal that we can both be benefited from.If you see any of my images somewhere without my permission or without credits please contact with me immediately at gogomelone@gmail.com OR gogo_melone@hotmail.com

WHAT YOU NEED FROM ME TO START WORKING?

As everyone in the business, I have some terms to protect my work and our collaboration from awkward misunderstandings. I’m here to provide you my skills and I’m very open to discuss all of the ideas you may have but I don’t like to work with “words in the air” so for this reasons we are going to create a nice schedule together which is going to help both sides to get things done in a reasonable period of time, easy and smoothly.

CAN YOU WORK FOR ME FOR FREE AND DO EXCHANGE OF SERVICES?

No guys, this is my real job and I put all my soul and effort to make it right. In case you have financial problems or you’ve spent a lot of money making other things please DON’T use it as an excuse to get a better offer from me, it doesn’t work this way. The only people I might give free of charge graphics are those I know personally, my friends or relatives and that’s it.

DO WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO MODIFY YOUR ARTWORK AFTER IT'S DONE, CHANGE COLORS ETC. BEFORE THE PRINTING?

Please DON’T. This is actually a very serious matter. Any modification can easily destroy the quality of my work and I wouldn’t like to see that. I’m 100% responsible for all the graphics I provide to you so if you want me after some time to modify/fix something for you, please ask me and I’ll do the best I can. Often labels or managers suggest things because that’s their job but sometimes they’re asking you to change something that has already been made by someone else. I will not say it’s disrespectful to enter in foreign fields, I will leave it to your own judgement. In case you have issues with your graphics, you always have to contact your designer first.
