Dear What Am I Worth

I cater for all its graphic needs, for example Web, print and television. This includes 2D and 3D Animation, Web design, MPG encoding and graphics for print, ie advertising, posters and CDs.

Mercury Consulting replies: $40,000 to $50,000. This assumes you have only some Web design work and are interested in focusing on graphics design in Web development group, and you have little software development knowledge. Your value will grow rapidly as your programming/systems/process knowledge expands.
