pricing

Greetings everyone. Love some advice on type treatments for price lockups that look elegant on screen. Have a client who employs Helvetica Neue (licensed) as it's corporate type face and I'm struggling to create an elegant system for displaying potentially verbose number amounts. Example: $329.87 looks fine small but at larger sizes gets clunky. Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

Hey, Typophiles! Turning to you for advice: I bill by the project, and have just finished laying out a report that I billed at 2.25 days. Only problem is that (for once!) I overestimated how long it would take – I really worked about 1.5 "days" on the project, including admin.

My question: do I follow-up once the project closes and adjust my fee downward, making clear the reason? Or do I take the money and run, since we all agreed on the scope and the rate in advance?

Please direct me to the appropriate thread if this topic already exists.

I was contacted by a company that wants to license my typeface for distribution in their software package. The typeface is currently available for free and has a very limited character support (caps only and no diacritics, but that doesn't seem to concern them).

How do I price something like this? What follow-up questions might I ask?

License Pricing

Hi all, I had a hard time finding an appropriately close answer to my question elsewhere so I'll ask it outright. My studio is working on a custom sans serif font for a client (lc, UC, #s and punct). We started with just the end product in mind but now the client wants to buy the font outright so no other usage or distribution will be permitted. I have NO idea where to start with pricing something like this out. Any advice would be great. _w

I am a designer, and over the past 2 years I have created several typefaces (Latin 9). I have done this at my salaried job. I also do freelance design and have recently been asked to give someone a quote for a Latin 9 San-serif character set. Does anyone out there have a general pricing guide they use for freelance type design?
