    Hi all! I am a designer in Louisiana and trying to make any and all networks I can. I have a part-time design job and freelance, but also have a full-time job unrelated to design. I really want a full-time design job but the job market (and pay) here is horrible. Just trying to keep my portfolio up and do as much as possible. Looking to move out of state in the near future. Any advice on smaller places with high job markets, or is my only chance bigger cities like NY? Looking forward to being invovled on the site and meeting fellow designers!

          I think Minneapolis/St. Paul has a pretty decent job market. Not quite as big as Chicago or NYC?!

                    Hello tink.

                    Want us to clap for you to show that we believe?

                      Sure thing budafist!

                      Funny story though - I dressed up as Tinkerbell a few years back and the whole 'clap if you believe' came up - everyone started clapping. Except one guy, and when told that if he didn't clap I would die, he said he didn't care if I died. Hm, guess that's a sad story, not funny. We laugh about it now though.

                          You should have poked him in the eyes.

                          I'd clap.

                            Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

                            If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

                            I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

                            Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....

                            That could be a good thing for people in the industry that give a damn, just another reason for someone to pay a little more for quality.
