Advice on starting freelancing! What should I be charging?

    Hello, My name is Zara, I'm 24 and I have a master's in Surface Pattern design.

    Throughout my time in uni I ended up doing a lot of digital design, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. I currently have a full-time job as a Graphic Designer. Although I feel I do have time to take on some extra work!

    I have been approached by a local artist asking me to digitalise her paintings and make them into patterns, shes also asked me to create looks books, etc for her. I am going to meet her this weekend to talk more about it, but I don't know where to start when charging for my work! Due to the variety of the work she wants should I be charging hourly or an amount per design?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
