a blog about Photoshop, Illustrator and inDesign

Happy Valentine’s Day everybody!How you all doing today? I’m at work now, made a quick illustrator rose for you, haha. Champagne coloured roses are my favourite kind!
However, I’m going to save the rest of the love I hold for later tonight, so now I’m going to talk about something completely different.
Freelance! As many of you know, I’ve made quite a few freelance jobs lately, I actually made a quick one today aswell (cross your fingers and hope it gets sold!). But there’s one thing I’ve always been wondering, but too lazy to look up.What should my hourly wage be?At the beginning, I didn’t want to cost too much. I had just graduated, I was still a bit unsure and a nice portfolio was more important than money. So with other words I knew I was very “cheap”.Now however, I felt that it was time to look it up. So if you guys are wondering, here it is: (atleast in Sweden).Most freelancers take around $60-70/h to their regular customers,around $80-90/h to other costumers and some advertising angencies take up to $160/h for logo’s etc. I don’t know about you guys, wether you freelance or not, but I found this quite good to know, so I just figured I’d share it.(btw, dont know why the rose wont center itself, freaking annoying but what to do?…)
