freelance rates


New Member
Hi can I ask questions in this bit about freelance rates? I know, I know, it's a question as old as time itself but I've just started out freelancing after being made redundant and have had little time to think about setting up a pricing package. What I do know is that I need to build a client base asap and if that means going in cheap to start with, then am prepared to do that. I know that at my last job we were charging around £50 an hour for standard design rates (page layout, artwork etc) but I am thinking of more around the £30 mark, does that sound reasonable for starters? Any guidance much appreciated
I earned around £28k at my last job but I'm realistic...
thanks a lot everyone
