hawaii 5-0

this is old news but it's an excuse for me to post something for the 1st time.

i checked out the hawaii 5-0 awards ceremony. wall 2 wall swept it. nomura designs also took quite a bit of awards. i visited their studio for an AIGA tour with KCC and UH. A lot of the designs they showed us at their studio won awards. It was a trip to be able to see this. Also, this student from UH...something Chenen, ranked in the top five over all with his book design. It was the first time a student… Continue

hey derick, to be honest i have no idea. but don't charge too much. charge enough to get the job. experience is the important thing; thats what i preach on my blog. i'll ask around though. stay tuned.

Hi Derick -

Just an FYI with Empowered Internet's ZeppOS which is a very high powered content management editor where once designs have been cut for a client, they can manage basic areas on their own for the site as text, images, etc.. It takes a load off designers in hand-holding and supporting clients allowing you to take on more business.

Derick: i might be designing a simple 6 page website. i was wondering if you had any idea of how much to charge. if i get the job, this would be my first paid job. i'm still a student studying web design so my coding skills are weak.

Hi Derick. I know some students that charge $100 / page. Another option would be to charge something like $400 for a project fee and $50 for every page beyond 5. Of course companies often charge 10x this much, so it would be a good deal if you worked hard and created a nice site. It really depends on how far you are with your studies, if you are doing things like illustration, and other factors. I hope this helps.

PS: did your message translate: "Kat-chan, thanks for telling me about this website?" if I'm right then yay! If not, guess I gotta brush up on my Japanese ;)
