Graphic Design Rates & Packages

Graphic design rates can vary based on a number of considerations, including job complexity, the designer’s experience level, location, demand, etc. They also need to factor in business overhead and general operational costs, such as the designer’s desired salary, rent, advertising/promotion, monthly cloud software subscriptions, professional membership dues, value-added/brokered services, taxes and more. All of these, together, help determine what a designer needs to be able to pull in, financially, on a monthly basis. From there, it is up to the designer as to whether to charge a flat, per-project fee or an hourly rate.

My rates are based on my 20+ years of professional experience, as well as the quality and number of services I provide.

I offer two types of pricing strategies, to accommodate a number of scenarios and customers:

  1. An hourly rate for small, individual or infrequent projects, or
  2. Tiered monthly packages for ongoing work and companies who are serious about their marketing efforts.*

Choose the option that works best for you!

Note: all rates are during normal business hours (Monday–Friday, 9 AM–5 PM) only. Work outside of normal business hours will be billed as a rush (2x standard rate).

* Don’t see a tiered monthly plan that fits your budget? Call or email me and I can customize one for you. For example, if you have just a $500/month budget, I can set up a small plan with 5–7 hours a month (you’ll see a tiny break in the hourly rate at maximum time commitment, but the bigger breaks are reserved for the larger packages).
