Pricing Structures

I’m all about providing flexibility and transparency when it comes to pricing. With my itemised packages, you’ll be able to keep track of your spending and know exactly where your money is going. I offer various options including hourly rates, half-day rates, day rates and project rates, all with their own benefits.

Hourly Rate

With my flexible hourly rate, you only pay for the time you need. Whether you have a small project or need help figuring out exactly what you need, I’m here to help.


Additionally, an hourly rate is great for smaller projects or if you’re unsure of exactly what you need.

Half-Day Rate

With a half-day rate, you can schedule your design work around your other important commitments such as meetings or personal time.


This option is perfect if you have a lot of work to be done in a short amount of time. You’ll get a concentrated burst of creative energy.

Day Rate

You’ll have a full day of uninterrupted creative time to focus on your project and ensure it’s completed effectively.


Whether you need a quick design turnaround or a more complex project, a day rate gives you the flexibility to get the specific design work you need without worrying about hourly rates adding up.

Project Rate

With a project rate, you’ll have a clear understanding of what you’ll be getting and what it will cost, with no hidden fees or surprises.


By defining the project scope together, we can work towards a common goal and ensure that we’re both on the same page.
