Graphic Design Rates

Graphic design rates vary based on a number of considerations, including job complexity, the designer’s experience level, location, demand, etc. Some designers price per project, while others price by the hour and still others use a combination of the two. I have found that an hourly rate works best for me, because I can accurately estimate the time to complete a project, and then I can track my time spent to keep things within budget. In all cases, though, I will provide an official estimate upfront, prior to starting any work, so that you know what to expect and so that there will be no surprises.

I offer three hourly rates, based on the type of customer: new/infrequent, preferred and non-profit. See the charts below for details.

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 your hourly rate).
