"How does this work?"

I work for a 
broad range of individuals, small businesses, and the occasional big ones, too, on a huge range of projects. Typically someone will say "hey can you do--" and then we'll talk through what they're after. If it's something I can do, I'll often ask for notes, mock-ups, logos, etc., and then most important: a deadline and budget estimates. If we agree to work together, I usually charge a deposit up front, then final fee for the finished project. I typically charge by the project, not by the hour, as it's been my experience that hourly work can get out of hand for both me and the client. For example: a website revamp a client thinks will take one day (!) winds up taking 2 weeks. That time adds up! I don't like surprises, and (like most freelance artists) have sometimes had to hold websites/artwork ransom until I get a payment because someone underestimated what they wanted. Instead, I estimate a project will take, for example, 10 hours and then quote my hourly rate. If you liked my work, I love referrals and am pleased that I have several repeat customers. I am also happy to share references upon request.

"How much do you charge for _______?" 

As a small business owner myself, I know it's important to shop around and get a price that works for you. That said, I would much rather clients level with me and say "I have $150 to do this project, is that doable?" than have someone say "what's the lowest you would charge for a podcast logo?" If you want the absolute cheapest rate, you can find someone who will do low quality work for you and maybe it will be amazing! For me tho: I've spent many years figuring out the best way to create, for example, social media templates that someone can pay for once and then re-use to their heart's content! This stuff takes time and effort, so I will charge for my experience and skills. The other great thing about charging a deposit (vs. a full project rate up front) is that if you start a project and then your budget/concept changes, we can pause there and regroup when you are ready to resume. I have worked with many clients to do affordable payment plans. I've been paid hundreds of dollars for massive projects, or twenties of dollars for quick edits on a tattoo or logo. Let's figure it out! :)
