Depends on the project specifics. Basically there are two types of billing – hourly and design quote.
1. Hourly rate. That means that in the first offer that you are going to receive from me there will be a rough hourly split but in the end, when the project is done, the hours may vary – depends of the number of iteration. I will provide you with detailed table with every hours that I worked and the job description of what I have done behind this hours.
How can you be sure if I have worked same hours that I will send you? You can’t! But over the years I have been working with different clients, some of them was working with me as colleagues in companies and most of them are coming back to me over and over again – and they can assure you that I am honorable and working pretty fast. If you doubt – check my testimonial page. If you still doubt contact me and I can provide you with contact of some of my clients for references, or we can try working with billing type 2.
2. Design quote – after we clear the project specification I will send you a design quote (which is still based on summary of hours I am thinking that the project will takes me).
For example typically, first draft of a logo design will include 3-5 different designs for your input, whereas а website design will be presented, according to the specifications we’ve discussed.
After your input, I will make changes and present the refined design for your approval. A second round of small changes is included in the original design quote. After two rounds of changes, any additional changes you request will be billed at my hourly rate.
All this will be spelled out in the design bid proposal for your approval, before a deposit is taken or work begins.
