Main price factors

  1. Time spent on design

Like many design services, the price is higher when you need a long project that requires a lot a consultation with the designer and many revisions. Therefore, the price will be lower if your goal is clear and you already have some ideas.


Graphic designers can charge you with an hourly fee (between $60 – $120 according to the task) or a fixed fee. The longer and more complex your project is the more expensive it will be.

Tips, tricks and challenges:

  1. Work with a timeline in mind and discuss it with your designer to estimate the cost of the project
  2. Plan beforehand your aims and goals of the design so the designer knows the result he/she is aiming for easily

Advice from buyer:

Portfolio. Watch out if portfolio consistency. It could be stolen. Whether they have work that already fits your existing brand guideline. Ask them for delivery time, make sure it can be done on time. May delay. (Inez Wihardjo BonAppetour, Operations Director)
