The general job description of a graphic artist can encompass many specialites. Over the last two decades, I've been asked to design a wide range of stuff: logos, print ads, cd packaging, magazine covers, tattoos, menus, technical illustrations, trade show exhibits, beverage labels, billboards, wedding invitations, etc. Probably my favorite is gig poster design.
I'm a fairly versatile graphic artist. The kind of artist that can design your logo and letterhead, advertising campaign, website, vehicle graphics, company softball jerseys and the floorplan for a sunroom on your house. Really. I'm always up for a new challenge.
I've designed hundreds of logos for a worldwide clientele. Sometimes, it takes 12-15 concepts before the client and I find the right look. Other times, we hit a homerun right off the bat. It's difficult to predict how many concepts it will take to settle on the right idea, which makes it difficult to predict the cost of doing a logo. For this reason, I charge a flat $750 for logos. That way, regardless of the time involved, the client knows what to expect to pay.
For general freelance, I charge $75/hr. for graphic design/illustration/layout. But up front, I still estimate each job based on the complexity of the project, your
direction, and the timeframe allowed. Please peruse my portfolio and if there is something I can design for you.
