a blog about Photoshop, Illustrator and inDesign

I almost forgot to show you this! This is the most recent logo I sold! It’s for a company called Företagsstiftaren. It’s basically a company that helps people who wants to start a company to take over an already existing (but not used) company rather than creating a new one.This eliminates lots of administration and paperwork and it takes much less time than if you were to create a company from scratch.uuuh… Did you understand? haha. Anyways, I sold the logo through creators.se. There are many more freelance websites out there and it’s a smart way for freelancers / students etc to make some extra money every now and then, and also a great way to expand your portfolio! Sorry if this post was a bit messy, but my mind is on vacation today.

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?…)

Here’s a logo I sold a couple of weeks back! Payment came today so now I can finally show you! Ekman Event & Media is a company arranging fairs and events in Sweden, they wanted a logotype and contacted creators.se! This is the first logo I’ve sold at creators and I must say I’m proud of myself! It’s tough competition, but out of 16 different logos (including this one) they chose mine!
