Any Freelance Flash Designers out There?
December 6, 2006 7:14pm CST
I have been doing flash design for quite some time but have always worked on a per project basis. Recently a company asked me for hourly rates. I know when I first started out, rates for Flash Design Rates were $40+ but as I search the web I am finding that the rates are far more competitive even for experienced designers such as myself. Even going as low as $10 per hour. I am simply looking for advice on what is an acceptable hourly rate to ask?

$10, that is really low. I think rates are set depending on where you live. For example, there are very few Flash designers where I live so my fiance who has been working in the field for over 5 years and programs in ActionScript has bid $120/hour and easily won bids. However, when he bid projects for a company in Tennessee the highest he could bid was $75/hour.

Thanks so much. Your info was very helpful. I almost fell off my chair when I was $120. This is very promising considering the company I working for is in San Fran. Guess I should brush up on my actionscript and get myself out there. I am not sure if we are able to promote here or not but does your husband have a website I can look at, just so I can compare my talents to his and see if I am at the same calibre.
