Today we discuss freelancing (full-time or just moonlighting) and how to charge for your services. Note: We’re not discussing how much to charge, but instead how to connect the payment to the work: fixed price, hourly, or other.

AWDG Official Podcast

Design vs Dev is now the official podcast of the AWDG, the Atlanta Web Design Group. We will be reaching out more to the AWDG community for topics and guest hosts, plus we will have a special place on the AWDG website. A big thanks to the AWDG for adopting us!

  • Are there differences between designers and developers when it comes to pricing models?
