Graphic design rates for 2021
Posted by larkpeyton on June 1st, 2021
Here's what you can expect to pay a designer for tasks like logo creation to website design - whether it's an employee, an agency or a freelancer.
Excellent graphic design can capture customer attention by enhancing the visual appeal of websites, logos, brochures, advertisements, and other media. Luckily for us, in 2021, the number and variety of graphic designers we can choose from is endless.
So, how do you source a good, low-cost graphic design if you're on a budget? Or if you need design assets turned around quickly?
Fortunately, freelance graphic designers can help. If you already know you need help from a freelance graphic designer, great! You can post your project and get started now. If you're still on the fence about the best way to get the graphic design you need, read on.
How much does it cost to hire a graphic designer?
The cost of graphic design services will primarily depend on three factors:
The type and complexity of the service required. A simple logo design, a series of Instagram designs, and a full website design are three very different jobs requiring different skills and commanding different prices.
The solution you choose to get the work done. Will you do it yourself using free or inexpensive online tools? Hire someone in the house? Go with an agency? Engage a freelancer?
Where your designer is located. This mainly applies to agencies and freelancers, both of which can be anywhere in the world. Many agencies and freelancers in developing countries can charge much less than their counterparts in developed countries where the cost of living is higher.
The first factor that determines how much you’ll pay is the type of service you need, and this is directly related to the complexity of the job. Here is a graphic design services price list to help you get an idea of what to expect.
The low-end represents a DIY approach using basic online tools (you’ll get what you pay for), while the higher end represents what you could expect to pay a professional agency or an in-house designer.
In the middle is what you might expect to pay a freelancer, ranging from novice freelancers in developing countries to professionals in developed countries.
