This is a first for me. I’m not sure if it’s a ‘normal’ thing for a buyer to ask for the editable source file of a brand guide. I explained it to her in the following manner:
‘I usually don’t deliver brand guides as an editable file. I set them up in InDesign. If you want an editable file, it will bring extra costs. The branding guidelines are meant as a base, set up by the designer. Only to be adjusted by the designer, no one else. It will be an Indesign Package file including a .indd .pdf and .idml file, so it requires the program Adobe Indesign. It’s not possible to convert it to any other editable file than the three mentioned.’
I’m wondering what your point of views are on this matter.
