Client meddling comes at a cost in this Fibonacci-inspired guide to setting your fees.
Calculating your rate as a designer or illustrator is a notoriously tricky task, as is managing clients that think they can design.

Clients: take note. If this pricelist is anything to go by, your design ‘skills’ might be about to get costly.
