I wouldn’t know what is an adequate price for a good design. According to The Blog Herald, however:
In the last month, we’ve been discussing with various designers the costs associated with redesigning this very blog – The Blog Herald. Prices ranged from $1000 – $4000 or more depending on some various options.
Getting an outstanding design on your professional blog is not only critically important – it is not cheap to do. Not with a good designer anyways.
Interesting. I’ll keep this in mind if I have to hire out for a redesign. Of course, there’s also recommendations on IT Consulting Rates: What Should You Charge?
