4. Some suggestions for your work

3 27

I believe that there are still many newbies who have doubts about "receiving orders" after seeing this. The following is a popular science answer for you.

1. Negotiate the number of revisions in advance with the client

It is recommended that you reach an agreement with the customer in advance to avoid the reduction of efficiency due to the number of revisions in the subsequent work. Because before the graphic design work begins, both parties often need to communicate and agree on the number of changes to the finished product. Assume that once the design is complete, if the client keeps asking for revisions, it will consume your time indefinitely. The scope of changing the design generally includes some subtle changes, such as fonts, colors, graphics and text positions and so on.

2. Strictly abide by the construction period

(1) Agreement time

Including the delivery of the first draft and the revision time of each time, it can be stipulated that the revision task can be completed within 1-2 months

(2) Make a timetable

The two parties can agree on a timeline so that both parties can have a clearer work progress. If there is an urgent need for the design work,Graphic DesignerIf other work needs to be suspended, the fee will naturally increase.

(3) Reserve flexibility when quoting

As can be seen from the above, many graphic design services involve a variety of matching processes. It is difficult to use a fixed price as a budget indicator in the initial quotation. Instead, using the price range can cover more gray areas, the quotation is more accurate, and it is also convenient for customers to know the designer. the upper and lower limit of the fee. Therefore, the price range can more effectively represent the in-line charges than a single fixed price, so that customers can know the market price of similar services, and then choose different options according to their personal needs, so as to avoid big loss of budget.
