As a follow up to last month's MeetUp event learning the ins and outs of creating design contracts with David Adler, we're now going to discuss how to go about pricing your work.
We are fortunate to be able to bring in guest speaker Stephan Perrault, Multimedia Brand Specialist, and owner of ArchiFilms. Stephan has over 25 years of experience in design and freelance design, logo design, videography, copyrighting, social media and more!
Stephan is going to speak to us about how to handle pricing various design projects from print to web.
- Are you not sure if you should charge by the hour or by the project?
- Perhaps you aren't sure how much to charge for logo design, and how many logo variations you should include for a given charge?
- Not sure how to figure out your hourly rate as a freelance designer based on your experience?
- Why it's important to know your fair market value, and how not knowing this can hurt the entire freelance design industry. Don't under sell your skills and services.
Stephan will provide guidance, based on his vast experience across multiple mediums, in his discussion on how to approach these issues, and what is the best approach to take in charging for various projects. For more information on Stephan Perrault his company, and his background, you can visit his website at www.archifilms.com.
We look forward to having Stephan on board, and hope everyone will be able to attend.
