I was just reading another forum that touched on this general topic so I thought I'd post this and ask a couple of questions. I've been doing graphic design since the mid-90s, including freelance work for some of that time. I haven't freelanced since 2009, except for a couple of times for a family member, and I've recently been considering the possibility of getting back into it. I didn't have an extensive client base back then, and am out of touch with those previous clients. My questions are: -- What do you typically charge clients for your time? -- Have you had any experience with freelance/contract websites like freelancer.com or thumbtack.com? If so, did you have a good experience with them? Was it worth it?
