I accepted a "full-time" freelance gig. Its freelance since its only 6 months and its remote and no need to go to the office. But I'm the only one who's gonna do their designs. They asked me for my rate and it was tricky for me since I'm going to be paid monthly like its a full time job.
I asked the frequency and scope of designs. I took the job and 3 weeks in, they're making me do vouchers and the frequency was more than I expected. Now they want me to do business cards. The scope of work was only posters and social media posts.
Honestly the rate wasn't THAT bad but I really wasn't expecting it to be this much. And I'm shy to confront them since honestly I'm thankful that they hired me. I'm not that experienced yet with design and its hard to get freelance clients. This one is fixed for 6 months. No hassle to source clients for me.
Here is the exact email for the scope of work:
Layouts per brand (THREE BRANDS)
- Menu editing – 1x every quarter (price revisions, removal of slow moving items, additional new items)
- Promo Posters – 1-2x monthly; resize for menu insert (optional) resize for social media, resize for tent cards, resize for creative standee, resize for poster
- New Branches – lamp post banners, soon to open posters, board up collateral
- Social media for posts – 1-2x per week
