An hourly rate doesn't have much meaning to most clients. If you are pricing costs, different designers use different tools, have different skills and speed of execution, which will all affect the bottom line.
Also, a designer who truly understands your company and client base will be able to execute any piece you require faster, with fewer revisions, which saves you money.
So while there is an hourly rate, and it is $50/hour, how much you will pay for a particular piece will vary, depending on your needs, depending on the complexity, and even depending on how many people on your committee need to approve the piece.
Consultations are free. During this time, we both will get a clearer idea for how well and how quickly we can work together. If we are to proceed, I will submit to you a time estimate and total estimated cost.
I will also work on a flat rate cap, which is a bit higher than a time estimate, but which means that there are no further charges. If you require 30 revisions, I will do 30 revisions, cheerfully.
The below are only estimates based on how many hours the project should take based on past client experience. Your project may cost more or less depending on what you need. You may pay more, you may pay less.
I offer substantial discounts for start up companies in the handcrafted businesses. This is primarily because I am very familiar with the ins and outs of marketing, customer base, and competition for the small crafts industry. There is minimal research required on my part, as I have been in the industry as a customer, business, hobbyist, and graphic designer for myself and others for over 10 years. If that is the nature of your business, please email me for a special quote.

Website Image and Search Engine Optimization
If you take a look at this website, you will see very crisp and sharp photos (look at a photo to your right... do your website images look like this?), my text can be very small because it is not jagged or fuzzy. Unprofessional sites are often improperly optimized, and just look 'off'. Please compare.
I offer both website optimization as well as search engine optimization, so when someone finds your page on google, what they see is beautiful and professional.
I further offer free additional training one on one with each website, so if you choose, you can do your own updates to save future costs. I am very open about helping you update the way you choose.
