GRAPHIC DESIGN QUOTES / RATES

Every project comes with its own unique challenges, and it is therefore difficult to appraise how much your project will cost you before we begin working together. Having said that, with experience comes a bit of knowledge and I've now put together a consistent hourly rate for long-term contracts (3 months +) as well as starting prices for flat-rate expectations of short-term projects (1 day to 3 months). There is also a price for consultations (for short-term contracts) outlined below for your convenience.

Disclaimer: Keep in mind rates have changed since August of 2017, and all previous contracts will not and cannot be affected. Also remember that the following are approximations and prices may vary depending on the complexity and diversity of each project. The following information does not over-ride any previous contracts, nor any current or future contracts. The following prices are guidelines

NOTE: I will NOT remove watermarks on another artist's photography work, nor my own. If you provide photos to be used in your layouts make sure they are full-resolution and usable. It is immoral to ask someone to remove another artists' watermark, and illegal if you do not posses the rights to use the work. If you do not have the rights to the work you want to use, please acquire them or find something else to use.
