    Great article Alex. I think you are totally right, the fact is i talk to so many people who are cagey about pricing when it should be quite easy to talk about if you are transparent and the price is justified with skill and experience.

    As you say, it’s not a one price suits all and we have base rates which change upon requirement and experience of briefs. Nearly all our projects take us well over budget but we don’t usually pass this cost on – we just like to do more! I think it’s a case of knowing what your work is worth and that way you can be comfortable with your costs.

    We all need to make a living but it sounds like you have the same ethos as us with regards to doing a good job. Good work chap – keep it real.
