    As a designer how much would you charge for these flyers/posters?

    A lot of work has gone into these I would say at least 2-3 hours. Personally I would charge between £110-£150 for each poster as they are completely unique and of a very high creative quality.

    Generally Indesign is thought to be the industry standard when it comes to publication print like posters, leaflets etc. Using illustrator is not as uncommon but is mainly used for creating vectors for use in Indesign and most commonly for logos. I think it is defiantly worth you spending...
