How much should I charge?

    Hey there!

    Having had a look at some of the other threads on here, I know a lot of others have asked similar questions, although this is a little different... I'm a graphic designer and have already designed a logo for my client but they have asked me to produce some illustrations/characters to represent their team (3 people). They have to fit in with an existing style, which is very graphic and bold so I will be using mostly flat shapes rather then spending hours painting in detail in Photoshop.

    As I'm primarily a graphic designer and this is an illustration project, which isn't my specialism, I don't feel I can charge my usual hourly rate and it will take me longer to do the work than I imagine it would take an illustrator. How do illustrators charge for work? Do you do hourly rate x length of time estimated? How much would you charge for a similar project?

    I would agree a fixed amount with your client.
    ...and charge your normal rate. You are still using your skills for their benefit.

    If the clients happy, go with it.

    Most of the illustrators I know, charge a flat rate.
