    Title says it all,

    Whats the biggest paying project you ever had in graphic designing?

    Berrys response would explain that biggest is very objective, and what mohammad most likely means is the most well paid. Which he would then explain depends on the outgoings aswell as the incoming. However for price of a project he has charged someone, his largest is probably never going to be told :p
  4. I don't want to say the most i've been paid.. :( its not a nice figure and I will make me unpopular LOL :p

    The biggest single project I worked on ( not earned personally) was a £12miilion ad campaign for a travel company including national rebrand. TV, outdoor, radio, press. Did get to film all the TV commercials in Australia though! British Airways did manage to lose the film on the return journney though, ended up in Frankfurt! Just made the launch airing.

    Old saying is Turnover is Vanity, Profit is sanity. It's every designer role to get maximum profit out of every job. If you earn £1000 and spend 4 weeks on it it still works out at £8 or something. If you get £1000 and spend 10 hours on it then it's a £100 an hour and your laughing.
  8. mine was not as large as Berry's it was between £10,000 and £100,000 :)

    lol I like the way you keep adding "for a 13 year old" I just read a post of yours somewhere else on the net and it said "not bad for a 14 year old" which are you....?

    Not bad for either ages though I guess

    Ha poor Mo, I do think it's great that a 13 year old is busy designing and earning a few quid when most kids your age are spending their free time playing with their ps3's or themselves.

    However..... it might work out better if you kept it to yourself a bit so you can start charging more for your work? Your work is not that bad where as you have to use your age as an excuse.

    I think the biggest single job we've done is a 144m x 1m ice rink surround with artwork and print for an andrex sposored ice rink. Labrador puppies playing in the snow, awwww :D

    age is no excuse in this "internet age". You can make millions as long as you have the right idea. Imagine if i bought the domains "myspace" and "facebook" when i was young. I would have sold both domains for millions of dollars, but i was too dumb just listening to my need to read very hard to be successful. biology, physics, chemistry.......that **** never help you. I hate teachers that teach you stuff that you can never gain from.

    YOU can never gain from.... theres a difference between that and no-one can, how would you know YOU can never gain from it without learning it first?

    It would've just been called differently ;)
    Me and Tim were discussing this recently, and we came to the conclusion that you should've bought the domains to companies which already existed (Coca-Cola for example), not to something yet to be invented (at that time). Of course, is a generic site which is bound to be bough by someone :rolleyes:
