I'm hoping I might be able to get some ideas from some of you who have worked in Graphic Design. I haven't had the chance to go to school for Graphic Arts but if I could I would and maybe some day I will.
In the meantime, I have come across a wonderful opportunity that I'm really excited about. A business owner that I'm doing some painting for is developing a new line and asked me to work up some drawings for the first set of 40 designs. She said we'll discuss a rate of pay for my designing work then I'll also get paid for the painting of the designs. She already has a price for the painting but not the design work.
So my question is - what would you think is a fair price to ask if, although my designs are of a quality high enough to be accepted, I don't have a degree in the field or any schooling? Should I just let her set the price? I really have no idea what a fair rate would be and I want to be fair to both of us.
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!!
