    Design grid price Design grid price Document Transcript

    • Design Pricing Grids Feel free to leave comments using Google Docs’ nifty commenting feature! What is this? The goal of these pricing grids is to provide a range of budgets for freelance design services. These ranges are not meant to be taken as final budgets, but more as starting point to help clients and designers get the discussion started. Where do these numbers come from? I’ve based these numbers off my own experience both as a freelancer and while running Folyo. My goal in sharing these pricing grids publicly is to get input from other designers and hopefully make them a little less subjective. How to read the grids The three columns correspond to three experience levels: junior (1-2 years of professional design experience), senior (2+ years), and expert (5+ years experience or strong reputation in the industry). The grids also accounts for options such as front-end coding and responsive design. How to help If you’d like to help, you could: ● Give your opinion on each budgets (too low? too high?). ● Share your own prices (“I charged $X for the last logo I designed“). ● Suggests new project categories. ● Suggest other budget options. ● Give general feedback.
    • A few more notes ● All budgets are meant for a typical U.S.-based startup or small business (so not a 100,000 people multinational, or a local plumber in Kazakhstan). ● In all cases, consider the projects as work for hire, i.e. you’re selling all rights to your work as part of the agreement. ● The budgets do not include copywriting, research, content strategy, and other kind of preparatory work; it’s assumed that this has either already been taken care of by the client (hah!), or is budgeted separately. ● Each budget category is accompanied by a sample project story to provide more context. ● Each category also includes a sample real-world example (which is not related to the sample project story).
