How Much Do I Charge for Design?

How Much Do I Charge for Design?

Since 1999 I have operated as a design consultant, graphic designer and web designer from my dedicated studio near Okehampton in Devon. The view from my window is amazing and inspirational. I keep my overheads low which in turn passes the savings on to you. Please don't expect a free trip to Dubai or a meal at Quaglino's (it's a bit too far from Devon to be fair).

I will give you first class design, excellent customer service and a cup of lovely coffee or a nice cup of tea. My personal favourite is Lady Grey.
I've been around for a while and have vast experience in general graphic design, branding, web design, eCommerce and project management. Spend 1p or £50,000.00; you will receive the exact same excellent level of customer service, attention and care.

I don't get into jargonistic waffle, so no extra fees for imagineering, growth induction, vitalising, creative distillation or practical dimensionality. Just excellent, professional design.

Hourly Rate

I charge £45.00 per hour for most projects (dependent on our SLA) although I tend to provide a “price-per-job” quotation for my clients. Per project quotations often offer a significant cost saving over my standard hourly rate. At present I am not VAT registered.

Promotional Websites and Web Design

Please don’t confuse my websites with the TV advertised self-publish sites. My solutions are customer targeted, beautifully designed, precise, future proof and SEO ready - you will hit the ground running with all the major search engines. You also have the advantage of my ongoing expertise and marketing skills.
Hand crafted bespoke websites start from £450.00 for a professionally designed 3 page site with hand built and targeted SEO.
Want more pages? No problem, I'm happy to oblige. I can provide competitive hosting on my own server and build your website in WordPress; it’s the leading Content Management System. It’s free to install but does need a template and some tinkering to produce an excellent, good looking and functional website.
You should also budget for a domain name and hosting – usually around £25.00 every two years for a .co.uk domain and from £35.00 per annum for hosting. All my websites are mobile and tablet optimised with lightning fast load speeds. Any questions? Please get in touch here.

eCommerce & Online Shopping Websites

From £950.00. I make setting up online shops easy!
I offer leading eCommerce solutions which have comprehensive administration and reporting systems, the ability to easily accept payments by credit / debit card, PayPal, Amazon, BACS, eCheque or more traditional methods (cash on collection for example). You can add your own products or ask me to do it. Power is the key here - your eShop will be turbo charged (with extra wide Fandango wheels)!
My expertise is based on enterprise level eCommerce. Smaller sites are quick and easy to produce with all the added design flair and customer focused ingredients. They are really fast to load and mobile optimised as well - google loves them! If you are looking for a value based large scale project then please get in touch. My rates are excellent and I've been involved with complex eCommerce since 2009.

eCommerce Consulting

From £360.00. Find out more here.

Graphic Design, Brochures, Leaflets, Logo Design, Branding and Other Projects

These are more challenging to price because of your specific requirements. As a guide, a logo costs as little as £300.00.
This includes concepts, finalised artwork and all digital files ready for you to use in-house, on a web site or with your printer or other supplier. I am always happy to talk through your project and offer ideas on the most creative route.
Please contact me if you wish to discuss your project further (and what it might cost).

Website Training

You might like the idea of a training session for you or your employees. It can be on-site or at my studio. A Content Managed System website usually takes around 3 to 4 hours and an eCommerce site between 1 and 2 days. I charge a flat rate of £190.00 for half a day and £380.00 for a full day of training. I price most projects with training built-in.
You also choose the option of a permanent training resource in the form of a cDVD containing tutorials (which may be downloaded to your computer, website or intranet).
Each tutorial takes you through the key techniques in using your website and operating the software.
Am I different to other designers? Well, yes, of course; we are all individuals and that means you ought to expect something unique from me. Am I easy to work with? You bet! I've been a design professional since 1990 and learnt a thing or two about working with my clients. You should expect nothing but the best.
