Setting Rates for Graphic Design

It’s not just photographers that struggle with setting a rate, take a look at this infographic for graphic designers.

Does that fit for photographers?

I don’t think so. And I’m not sure it fits for designers, either – it accounts for none of their costs and assumes every penny billed goes to salary and that isn’t the case. Granted, the operating costs of a design business are lower than a photography business, but there are still expenses for computers, software, marketing, insurance, office space, internet access, phone services, legal fees, accounting fees and copyright registrations.

Unless they’re doing this as a hobby, which if you read other posts on that site (and I highly recommend you do) you’ll see that design clients think that work is just as easy as photography clients.

Clients From Hell is just as appropriate for photographers as designers.
