Hi

I'm planning on doing a workshop about this subject on my university. If you have any interesting information I would love to know. A friend recently shared some info about an Alliance of German Designers workshop:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
price per hour x hour = working price
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage type simple 0.2
Usage type exclusve 1.0
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage area national 0.1
Usage area regional 0.3
Usage area Europe 1.0
Usage area Europe 1.5
Usage area worldwide 2.5
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Usage time 1 year 0.1
Usage time 5 years 0.3
Usage time 10 years 0.5
Usage time forever 1.5
------------------------------------------------------------------------
usage extent small 0.1 (small print number under 500)
usage extent medium 0.3 (medium print number 500-5.000 copies)
usage extent big 0.7 (big print number above 5.000 -10.000 etc..)
usage extent seriously everywhere 1.0 (big print and or online)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total Factor = X.X
------------------------------------------------------------------------
working price x X.X = final price
------------------------------------------------------------------------

So, if you have some interesting information or some advice on this subject, I will be most grateful.

Your list seems more like something used by an artist or commercial illustrator rather than a graphic designer. A designer would typically list their hours by categories — consultation time (meetings, emails, phone calls), research, concept development, final art, revisions (with some clients, revisions may be a significant percentage of the total amount), etc — and would list reimbursable expenses by category —photography, illustration, proofs, printing, etc.
