  • Help w Current Market Rates

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me what is the current market rates/compensation for the following:

    1. Seasoned Graphic Designer who also provides full tech paks?

    2. Seasoned Graphic Artist?

    A. Full Time Rate vs
    B. Part time rate

    C. Large size company vs
    D. Small size company

    Thank you for your time.

    We cannot discuss rates and pricing on this forum.
    Pick up a GAG Handbook.
    Bear in mind,
    -your market area has a rather large influence on your rates.
    -full time vs part time can be the inverse of what you think it is because of full time perks.
    -some small companies pay more than larger companies. And vice versa.

    Homework?
    What's a tech pack?

      Oh no I didn't know rates could not be discussed I guess that would throw my discussion right out the door...

      I will look into this 'gag handbook' is it categorized by industry?

      Its not the pay for a fashion designer I am concerned with as I already know the going rate just for that but I need to find out the (in addition too) part which is also providing the tech pak level of expertise that is my dilemma.

      google tech paks but it is used for manufacturing/retail best way I can sum things is picture someone makes an original design for you as in you know fashion/clothing...men or woman or children, etc...

      now once the design is finish for your finish presentation &/or for the manufacturers you will need a blue print sort of speak of A-Z of that particular clothing (what type of a fabric is used or quite possibly what type of materials &/or color combinations that can also be used-so once again 'in addition to') this might also include types of accessories used with the garment (buttons, zipper....) also specialized jewelry, etc....

      Thank so much for your help. I do appreciate the information you have provided.

        A designer calls a tech pack a 'graphic standard'.
        Different industry.
        I call a tech pack a 'sample board'.
        Another industry.

        You won't find much on fashion design in the Graphic Artist Guild handbook...

            I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

            Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

            In terms of real world critique, if...

            Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

            Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

            The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
