Q&A :: Freelance Rates

The Question:

I’m curious about freelance rates around the country. See lots of requests for freelancers but never any info on the pay. What is the typical going rate in each city?

The Answers:

I have just done 2 freelancing jobs with the same event/floral company in LA. The going rate is roughly $15-25/hour in our area, all depending on your experience and speed.
Tara of By The Bloom, Los Angeles, California

I receive $15-20/hour in the DC/Metro Area when I have freelance for other designers.

It varies somewhat, depending on the type of work and time of year. I am an experienced fleelancer in Austin, Texas. I make between $15-25/hour depending on the job and who is hiring me.

It all depends on experience and location. We have junior designers and they charge a rate of $15 per hour, we also have a middle of the road designers, not with a ton of experience take a little longer but they get it done per our specifications and they charge $18 per hour…. and then we have two seasoned designers (floral ninjas) that come when we need them and they charge $25 per hour and they are worth every penny.

  1. in Houston, a less experienced helper is $15. Experienced designers get between $20-$25 depending on the company.

  2. I’ve been charging $15/hr to freelance but I think I may start asking for more depending on how far away the designer is from me and if it’s around a holiday season, probably $20/hr.

  3. In the Seattle Tacoma area I have paid $17 per hour for an experienced designer, and $25 per hour when I hired her for my daughter’s wedding, because I wanted to delegate more responsibilities.
