Hey everybody! My job is going great so far. I have been assigned a big project right off the bat. It's a large flyer to go into the newspaper here in town. 12 pages long packed plum full of things.
I've also got a couple of freelance projects to do on the side. But I don't really know what to charge people for them. I'm starting out, so I can't really go too high. The professionals here in town charge $60 an hour, and the art director charges $100 an hour for web design! So I wondered if maybe $25 an hour would be a good price. I would be doing work for the college, and kind of doing work for my teachers I had for graphic design, and they thought $25 was a little high, but they said they would see if they could get that from the board. Maybe I will ask them tomorrow what a fair price would be.
Does anybody here have any freelancing experience? If so, any idea what I should charge? Thanks!
