> I've been asked by a company to design a new set of Frame 5.5
> My question, for anyone out there who knows, is how much should I
As much as you can get and not less than you deserve, which ever one
is greater. The conditions under which you are working should have
more to do with it than what it is.
What you need to consider is:
1) How extensive a set of templates is it?
2) Will it take a day or a month?
3) Will you have out-of-pocket expenses (do you own a version of
Frame comparable to their version level)?
4) How much will prevent you from regreting taking the project when
you are pulling your hair out at 10pm on a Friday night?
5) How much will prevent you regretting taking this when a more
lucrative offer comes your way (and they always do)?
6) How much are you worth?
7) What is your rate for other Frame stuff?
8) How deep are their pockets.
9) Do you have a past history where they trust your work and are
willing to pay more for it?
