I just lost a potential client because I undercharged. at 200$/day. This would have been my second non-private client ever. Because things started out super casual and friendly I had no issues chatting a bit after being rejected for the project. I conceded being somewhat of a rookie and asked for feedback and input on why I did not get the gig despite my work sparking interest. Straight up was told my daily rate revealed me as being inexperienced.

Interesting isn't it.

So doing some thinking I came to the conclusion that past a certain point staying on /ic/ is purely toxic. Because it will make you convinced you are just never good enough. This is great for growth and development, technically, but incredibly harmful at the same time because you will always undercharge, and under-selfpromote. Both of which will hold you back massively if you want to transition into making art an eventual full time job.

well, they're not wrong. that's $25/h which sounds good but you're a contractor. That means you have to provide for yourself everything that an employer normally does for you. What you told them is that you'd essentially be willing to work for them for a take home pay of around $16/h

Some people are willing to take advantage of those who undercharge, some won't hire you because it's a sign of inexperience and they want a professional. Do a little research next time and don't forget that how much you get paid is a negotiation. Find out what you should be paid and ask for at least the medium.

Don't blame IC for your inexperience. This has nothing to do with confidence and everything to do with you not knowing how the real world works. Use google next time

Post your work please?

Well I think /ic/ is "toxic" as well but it has more to do with it being a total echo chamber where people speak in a authoritarian manner on subjects they don't know anything about (mostly comes from them parroting what some mediocre-popular artists has previously said).

You said it yourself that you are somewhat of a rookie, so being told that they said no because you are inexperienced is your own fault. Don't pin the blame on someone or something else.

Sounds like you were talking to a headhunter...don't take it too hard.

They cast a wide net then filter.

>blaming others for your own shortcomings

Y-y-yeah... It's /ic/'s fault!

Well, google images shows you're Taj Francis.

Based on your tumblr, I think you should probably ask for 32/hr. And then maybe factor in materials. A commision should negotiate. You should educate yourself on what you were asked to do.

What's interesting about that?

I work as a freelance graphic designer and I've never heard of this lol. I started out charging a lower rate than you and I still got oodles of clients. If your work is good and you charge a low rate a customer won't walk away. Chances are you said something they didn't like and they found an easy out. Stay mad that your own autism lost you a job, not /ic/.

>>2385726
just curious what type of work was being contracted, and if its not to much to ask, could you post some of your work ?
