I appreciate all of the information on your blog. As a new designer it helps me tremendously. My question is how do you bill friends? I struggle to charge my friends when I do work for them but I spend a lot of time working on their projects. How do you handle that situation? Thank you.
I would deal with friends very cautiously, the best thing you can do is have a contract from the beginning; this way there are no questions. Discussing money with friends can be awkward, so if you have someone in your office that can handle this part of the contract they should. If not make sure that you are completely upfront from the start, if you wait too long you will be in trouble…
Do any of you have any tips for working with friends?
