Freelance Blues

It’s Friday and I am having a horrible time concentrating. The weather is beautiful and I am stuck inside in front on my computer. Poor me. Anyway, today’s post is about the never ending question, “How much should my hourly rate be?”. . . . . a question that I have not found an answer to yet. I had a conversation with a fellow designer friend this morning about this exact problem. She had a new client propose to her the idea of doing freelance design for $17 an hour! (Doesn’t that seem like pennies?) I almost broke out the tissues and started crying. I proceeded to talk my friend out of this situation. This might have been a bad idea, but I feel it is lessening the value of her work. After we got off the phone, I searched online for some help with this situation. Freelance Switch had an online calculator to help suggest a rate. Design Talk Board had some helpful info as well. They cannot make the decision for you, but maybe they will lead you in the right direction!
