When you first start out freelancing it’s really hard to know what freelance graphic design rates to charge and of course no-one wants to reveal what they earn either. Obviously there are many factors to take into account including where you are based, how much design experience you have and of course what the market will stand, but at least now there is a guide to help you. I was alerted to a Freelance Rates survey by James Young from Welcome Brand who commented on one of my old posts What can you charge for freelance graphic design. The Freelance Rates Survey 2011 was compiled by Cole Henley after he was made redundant, started freelancing and wanted to know what to charge. He surveyed freelance people in the UK and compiled the results by Age, Experience and area of work and location.
