Prospective client’s often ask – Are you expensive? How much do you charge for your services? etc. The first thing a client should ask themselves is – what is my overall budget. Is it a realistic budget for what I’d like to achieve. If I needed to compromise – where would I compromise?
Often people think designers are more expensive to use – and after a few mistakes designing on their own they realize they aren’t. Designers can often produce a project on time and within budget if everyone is clear about what the goals and budget of the project are. And if a designer is reputable they should also be fair and not promise the moon on a very tight budget. Designer’s know where budgets can be reined in and where a client must “bite the bullet” to achieve project completion and enjoyment.
