  • Time allocation & Pricing

    Hi

    Am in UK, but my question isn't Continent related. So hope I may get some useful feedback.
    Am a Pre-Press Op about to go Self employed artworking. Now, seeing as I don't have a portfolio or database of work, I can't check back to get any answers for this: (except to say all those without a knowledge of back end don't spend nearly enough time on finished artwork!)

    How much time allocation would you put to Print design/artworking jobs (more from scratch). I've done some RnD stuff in past for Corp ID & drum about 6-8hrs if I'm Finicky. But for other run of mill, Stationery, Brochures etc how do you allocate a timescale which would be indicative to your quoted price?

    Also, how would people approach the issue of pricing. Fixed Hourly rate, no matter the client or by budget? Should I ask to work within the budget knowing full well I'll probably get Screwed on price...

    Hope for any useful info as I realise this is a 'how long is a length of string' request...
    Thanks
    Andy

    I like that you are answering the 'why' questions. Why is the text background red, why are you using the crumbled paper texture etc.

    This shows that you are thinking threw what you are doing...

    Hey @someguy,

    Thanks for sharing your designs! I would encourage and challenge you to try to narrow your design focus. Right now none of the designs are 'bad' but none are 'good'. Design,...
