So I've seen a nice topic with lots of responses about hourly rates for freelance graphic designers from this wonderful community.
I'm a graphic designer, got by mistake, meaning that if you were asking me two years ago what is a graphic designer, I bet I couldn't say too much. I'm fresh meat, but continuously learning and experimenting, trying to comprehend as much as I can.
Long story short: I work full time as a graphic designer (~ 2 years), but in my process on learning new things I got a client that needs an application, both for Android and iOS, something with social networking and some kind of booking system. The next step would be to make him an offer, meaning that I must put on paper the steps for designing the app from some provided sketches to the real design.
I want to correctly appreciate my work so in the ending to be paid fair. What is your process when you have a new client? What are the steps that you take when you're on the start line of a new project?
