Clarification Board

    Dear client

    People have every right to criticize when someone is offering a below par rate for professional work. I wouldn't worry yourself unduly about my 'efforts' in this critique as this just took me 30 seconds to write. I take a great deal more effort in proposals to potential, serious minded clients with well formulated concepts, mock-ups and strongly-branded headers and tags. Then again I am a professional who expects to be paid a fair market wage.

    Many clients on PPH do not seem to appreciate that Design is a professional skill, to which most of us have university degrees to back up and many years experience. You wouldn't ask an architect to design your house for £5ph or commission an artist for such, so why expect a Graphic designer to do it?

    No disrespect intended but this wage attracts only international applicants as so many others do on here.

  • Lubka C.

    Yes, you're right!

    If we agree to work as professionals with style and experience at the minimum wage, we'll probably get tones of work and will be busy 24/7. But does it worth it if the cashiers at the supermarket earn more than us?

    32 bids submitted and counting, I\'ve given up on PPH. As an experienced professional it dismays me to see people willing to work for peanuts.

    AR - May I suggest you plough as much effort in to finding work for yourself as you do criticising other people's bids.

  • Phillip F.

    Further to my previous comment...

    Minimum wage (UK) £5.93

    @ £32 this works out to £4 per hour, below UK minimum wage

    @ £60 for an 8 hour day this works out to £7.50 per hour (and this is the top end of the quoted price).

    So 'superb creative flair' @ £7.50 per hour is an utter joke. This client is a disgrace!

    P.F. - May I suggest you plough as much effort in to finding work for yourself as you do criticising other people's bids.... you might just be surprised how much work you get.

  • S D.

    good point..

  • S D.

    No need to clarify C.C. Clearly the job provider expects some designers will be willing to work for less than the minimum wage. Just bid at your hourly rate and what you are comfortable with.

  • Wayne ExPat H.

    Hi there

    I have the same question as C.C.

    Please clarify.

  • Stu R.

    Hi... Is your budget range supposed to be an hourly rate? Otherwise it looks like you're asking for a Designer to work on the basis of £4•£7.50 per hour, based upon an 8-hour day.

    Could you clarify please?
