    Hmm This isn't UX, it is UI... Its common to get the two mixed up but having worked in UX and now UI, there is a pretty big difference.

    Now from a UI stand point, there isn't much here...aside...

  • Not sure how much to charge...

    Hi,

    Im not sure where to post this but if i posted in the wrong section I apologize. But I need an idea on how much to charge for a Magazine Pre press, 64 pages, 4-colored, size A4.

    I never worked on a project like this before and not sure how much I should charge.

    You should work out how long it will take to design 1 page, multiply this by 64 pages and multiply this number by the amount you need to be paid per hour.
    It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?" Winnie the Pooh

      We can't discuss actual pricing in this forum. Against the rules and the law.

      You need to get more details other than just page count and size.
      Do you need to research/purchase images?
      Do you need to do anything to images if they are being supplied (silhouette/cleanup)?
      Are ads being provided 'camera ready' or do you need to design layouts?
      Copy:Image ratio?

        More likely, figure out how long it takes to do the initial layout of one page, then how long it takes to do the next page, using whatever graphical elements, text boxes, etc. are carried over from the page before. Multiply the second by 63, and add the first. Chances are, all the pages won't take as long as the first.

          Especially if you take the time to set up Masters and Styles first.

              Chances are the other pages wont take as long as the first, but chances are there will be some changes. I never know how to factor in the client's changes.

                ^that's what contracts are for. First x-number of changes included in price. Changes over at $$$ per hour in 1/4 hour increments.

                  Think liberal. Not just on cost, but also on turnaournd.
