I'm currently negotiating a salary for a Senior Visual Designer Salary. I'll be relocating from the US to Europe. the national average is currently 95-130k. Anyone got any tips for negotiation? What do?
Ask for the amount you want (or slightly higher) and be prepared to justify it, or perhaps go slightly higher than you would settle for just in case they try and beat you down. In my area (branding/packaging, London) an average senior salary is probably £40-45k. Without knowing exactly what field you're going into or where, at a senior level you'd normally be expected to be able to lead projects, present work to clients, manage and motivate younger team members, show a wider interest in design/craft beyond the scope of your day to day work and have a solid understanding of strategy. If you can do/have done most of that stuff and can cite some examples then you'll have a pretty good case. Also, if you're coming from the US - most agencies here would be keen to work with clients from your side of the pond, so maybe emphasise the fact that you have strong insights into that market to increase your value.
Thanks Anon. She asked me for how much I'm currently making $45 an hour. Hopefully they'll try to beat it. I found they're salary's on glassdoor and it's from 99k-135k for Senior Designers.
Any Advice about that style? I normaly use ASFD Pixel Sort and combine with Photoshop to made my own art. So there's any trick about this program? Any other reference than Giacomo Carmagnola in this style? Thanks.

Does anyone have experience with pay-per-project instead of per hour?
I just got a really cool gig for designing motivational posters but I have no experience with this form of payment. (I'm used to per hour)
I know I can bump out a decent design in about an hour but if he keeps me on revisions for eight hours, my profits will be miniscule.
Does anyone have any suggestions/advice about pay structures?
I recently had to do the same thing.
Structure your project price to include a set number of revision rounds. Any revisions that go beyond the number of rounds included would then be charged at an hourly rate.
Not only does this allow to you estimate better and build in padding on each project, but it also motivates the client to keep revisions to a minimum.
This works. I do something similar; the contract states that we'll spend x hours on the project and will absorb a 10% overage before incurring hourly charges. When we tell a client that they've hit 100% and are in the overage period they tend to wrap it up quickly.
How do you guys get design projects? I've been freelancing for russian market for about a year and now I'm trying to start on western market. I am currently trying upwork, I keep applying for projects, but still didn't get any. Do you guys know any other place besides upwork?
Thanks, could you give me any advice on how build my social media presence? I mean I have facebook and twitter account, follow/friend people, who are related to design, post some stuff on my page, I also have a dribbble account, but it all seems to be useless.
Have professional social media, seperate from your personal.
Be consistent, do different renditions of one thing. Whether that be movie posters, logos, typography, etc. Pick one area and just do that. Go deep, open yourself up. Provide value. Either by posting your process of how you did your works, advice to other designers, or day in the life kinda stuff. You'll have to do this for a while across several different social media accounts before you start to gain some following.
Also don't post the same stuff on all your social media accounts. As in don't just post something on facebook that you already posted on your instagram. Give people a reason to follow all of them.
Is this or /g/ the right board for SEO discussion? It doesn't quite fit either, but a lot of web designers are tasked with SEO these days so I'll try making one here.
Anyone have any good courses or tutorials for SEO? I want to build a little test site to test my web and UX design, coding and SEO(most importantly)
I'd say it belongs in /biz/ generally, though it could also fit into/g/, depending on how hands-on you want to get with the code.
SEO is about as far away from graphic design as you can get. Yes, they both often feed into making a website, but how you style the content has no direct bearing on how it gets ranked. You could have a well-ranked website with all of a page's default styling (black text on white background, all one typeface, no visual information hierarchy).
For your website specifically, I'd say only the design and of the UX of the site would be relevant to the board.
