Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a compiled list of questions I get asked from time to time. Please use the menu on the right to view the whole list.

How much will it cost?

I'm very affordable. I can be as flexible (and negotiable) as you need me to be with quotes based on time or by project. Once I have a clear brief and know what the job or project involves, you'll have a firm, fixed-fee quote.

For an idea of the ballpark my fees are in, if you're an ad agency or any other creative company, my pricing is geared so we both make a profit. I charge agencies a simple day rate with a half day minimum and discounts for 5 days or more. Here's how it works:

1. Standard day rate of £350
2. Discounted rate of £300 per day (5 days or more)
3. Contract rate of £250 per day for 5 or more days a month, ongoing

If you want to compare hourly fees, around about £45 p/h is pretty accurate.

For new clients I require 50% of my fee in advance. That's because you don't know me and I don't know you. The deposit shows me you're serious about wanting me for the project you've briefed me on.

I don't charge extra for rush jobs or weekend work, but hey - I've got a family - so bank holiday working comes at a 40% premium.
