Malcolm Xavier Founder and CEO My passion for UI & UX Development. I began almost ten years ago, when an encounter with a old computer and a desire to create clean, customer interface. Along the way I earned two degrees; B.B.A in Marketing from Texas Southern University and a Masters in Theology from Southern Methodist University. These two disciplines allow me a unique view of the total user experience. I have worked professionally as a User Interface Developer since 2003, all the way from assistant code monkey and bug squasher to Senior UI and UX Designer. Along the way I've acquired HTML and CSS skills, a working knowledge of javascript and a deep love for collaboration standards.

CHOOSE YOUR PLAN

MX Designs offers a variety of plans to fit every budget and time requirement. You choose your price upfront in order to guarantee graphic design services whenever you need them.

We offer contracts for 3, 6, 9, 12 or more months. (There is a discount for larger plans and longer contracts.) Any leftover hours can be rolled into the next month, but all hours expire at the end of the contract. (See pricing guide for details).

We also report the total hours completed and remaining. Each month, you receive a balance sheet that shows time and service amounts deducted from your graphics retainer. Additionally, you will receive a summary at the end of your contract to help you evaluate whether you need to adjust your design plan.

SIX PLANS TO CHOOSE Each plan is designed to give flexibility and affordability. Each plan is laid out as hours per week, but it also has a total hours pool that you use throughout the contract. You can save up your pre-purchased hours for one larger project, use smaller increments for small projects (such as website maintenance) and even add hours to your contract at a discounted rate. Your hours will expire at the end of your contract term, but we work hard to help you make the most out of your contract while it is active. We also offer you the option of extending your contract to use up your hours. If you still have leftover hours, MX Designs will allow you to retain 100% of those hours if you sign up for a 12-month extension contract or retain 50% of those leftover hours if you sign up for a 6-month extension.

HOW DO PAYMENTS WORK? Once the contract is agreed upon, you will receive an invoice via email that you can pay online or by mailing a check. Monthly payments are due in full the second week of each month of the contract. Payments not received by the end of that month will be penalized with 5% interest for each week the payment is late. Example of hours and payment. Company ABC is on a 6-month contract for MX Designs Moving Along plan. Their payment is $960 per month ($240 per week x 4 wks), for a total of $5,760 for the total life of the contract. Company ABC will receive a total of 288 hours of design time for the life of the contract. If they use more than 12 hours per week, they can take out hours of their 288hour bank until used up. Even if Company ABC goes over their allotted hours for the week or month, they still pay the same $960 per month. The monthly payment never changes (unless contract needs to be adjusted). This allows Company ABC the flexibility to shift between heavier workloads and lighter months. What are usual timelines for a project? Project timelines will be set and defined in the project schedule at the beginning of the contract. Most projects will have a first draft finished within three (3) business days after all details Are received. One-day rushes on projects are available, depending on schedule and complexity. What happens if I do not use all of my contract hours? Your hours will expire at the end of your contract term, but we work hard to help you make the most out of your contract while it is active. We also offer you the option of extending your contract to use up your hours. If you still have leftover hours, MX designs will allow you to retain 100% of those hours if you sign up for a 12-month extension contract or retain 50% of those leftover hours if you sign up for a 6-month extension. What if I need more hours? If you use up the total hours of your pool, you can either start a new contract or add more hours at a discounted rate. The rate will depend on your current contract. What if i need to cancel my contract? If you want to cancel your contract at any time, mx designs offers you the option to buy out the rest of the contract at 50% of unused hours. When you buy out your contract, your design hours will expire immediately, and design work will cease. Is the artwork my property? Artwork and creativity is intellectual property of MX Designs. You will receive property of your artwork as soon as payments are made in full. MX Designs has the right to retain rights if payments are not made.
