    I always find it difficult quoting on jobs.
    I am an experienced magazine designer.
    I have been asked to provide a quote to design two monthly magazines. One 60 pages and one 44 pages.
    All imagery supplied. Approx 55% editorial. All adverts supplied print ready.
    Final magazine to be output as print and an online version.
    What would be a fair price for both parties!
    Thank you

    It depends on your hourly rate, I personally for jobs like this charge an hour a spread, plus if designing a cover 8hours plus 4 hours artwork time. I charge £30 an hour so for the 60 Page magazine £1260 and the other £1020.

    Hope that helps you

    Have you discussed the terms of your contract yet? Some people prefer to pay an hourly wage, while others will want a "stipend" amount to be paid upfront. Knowing this can really help us get an idea of what the employer is expecting/willing to pay.

    Otherwise, Andrew has given an excellent breakdown of an appropriate pay scale.
