Use your own design experience to help determine the potential hours that may go into a job. For instance, a client wants you to bid on a logo, letterhead, envelope and business card design package. This could take you anywhere from 6 to 16 hours depending on the client and complexity of the job. So, you estimate the job at 16 hours and a rate of, we'll say $65 an hour, which equals $1,040. Hourly rates and design fees are going to vary from state to state and location to location, but here's what your client proposal may look like; Example: Company Logo / Identity: $800 $1,200 Work Flow: • Will provide at least 2 3 initial directions for your logo and letterhead system and work chosen direction to your satisfaction. • Will proceed with development after verbal or written approval on directions.
