Do You Need a Local Design Consultant for a Specific Expertise?

Our platform includes many different types of Design Consultants that have a variety of expertise fields. Compare, find and hire a local Design Consultant that has specialized in one of these Design & Multimedia areas:

How Much Does a Design Consultant Cost?

How much you should pay for a Design Consultant depends amongst others on the reason why you need Design Services. Also, determining the average fees charged by a Design Consultant is very hard to assess as it depends on so many factors and circumstances. Usually, a Design Consultant charges by the hour or on a per-project basis. Factors that affect the overall rate charged, include the region where the Designer is located, the experience level, the type of clients or markets served and last but not least what kind of Design Services are being provided which can be a more standardized routine kind of work or highly specialized work.

For example, a simple logo for a small business may be designed by a freelance logo designer based in India for less than USD 10 per hour while the typical fees involved for New Product Design & Work can easily be in the hundreds of thousands or even millions of US dollars.

Via our marketplace, you can search for and compare many types of Design Consultants and fine-tune on key factors that affect pricing, like region, specialization, hourly rate, experience level and types of clients served. When you have found your ideal candidate for the job to be done, you can directly get in touch via email or phone and start working, without any charges or interference from our platform. Find out how it works.

To get a general feeling about average fees involved for Design Services you can also check out this annual salary survey of typical functions in the creative sector. Another option is to check this Agency Survey, which includes info about common fee structures and the average hourly rate charged by typical creative functions.   

Not Sure Whether to Hire a Freelancer, Advisor or a Firm for Design Services Needed?

This is not a simple question to answer and depends on a lot of factors. First of all, it depends on your needs and the type of work to be done. Your available budget may play a role but should not be decisive because freelancers have a reputation to be relatively cheap while firms tend to be more expensive, but the same can apply vice versa. As for the quality of work, this fully depends on the freelancers and consultants/firms you hire. A freelancer may provide better quality work in half the time than that a firm could do. But, again the same could be vice versa. Furthermore, each of these service providers come with their own pro's and con's.

A Freelance Designer performs its work independently, selling work or services by the hour, day or job. Both parties involved have no intention to establish a long-term structural working relationship with each other. Often freelancers worked as a consultant for firms in their field of expertise, and at some point, in their career, they decided to do the same as they did but then via the freelancing route.

An employed Design Consultant is a person who is paid to provide professional/expert advice in a particular field or specialty, and who is employed by a Design Agency whose business is to provide these Design Services via its Design Consultants.

Professional service firms, like Design Agencies, exist in many different industries. They include tax advisors, lawyers, marketing professionals, management consultants, and web developers among others. They can be any firm that offers customized, knowledge-based services to clients. When clients hire these type of advisory firms, they generally do so because of that company's credibility and reputation.

It is common knowledge that a business is only as good as its people. So with that in mind, a good starting point is to try to find the best person for the job first, and this can be a freelancer, a particular employed consultant, or a firm that has specialized in the field you are looking for.

Finally, the good news is that you can search for all types of Design Services on our platform (Freelance Designers, Design Consultants, and Design Agencies) and compare them on the criteria that are relevant for you. Find out how it works.

Independents in the Design Industry

Our platform focuses on independents in the Professional Services Industry, including independent Design Consultants. In general, Independents are independent firms that are owner operated, they tend to work in their own country only and the bigger the standalone business is, the more different types of services provided. Boutique firm or agency is also a commonly used name for these types of entrepreneurial businesses. They tend to provide highly specialized niche services, but they may very well also directly compete with the major international firms in their industry. Strictly speaking, freelancers also qualify as Independents.

It happens very often that experienced senior professionals break away from the major players that hired them to set up their own independent firm and start a more entrepreneurial journey. Besides autonomy and more control, the ability to better define personal purpose is a typical driver to work for Independents or to start one yourself.

Due to their size, market power, and marketing budgets, larger international firms are usually easily found in the market. Small independent types of businesses do not have this luxury, and as such, they need to be more creative to find new work on a continuous basis. Using platforms like Consultants 500 is a perfect way to create extra opportunities because our primary focus and purpose are to help clients find independents in the Professional Services Industry, including independent Design Consultants.
