    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!

    I think the answer is you have to Fixed-price pricing is the preferred option for freelancers as it's based on the value provided. With this pricing, the freelancer guarantees the client that the job agreed to will be completed. As a freelancer, you price your work based on the value of the work instead of pricing based on time.
