Pricing Graphic Design


Thursday, March 17, 2016

7-10 p.m.

Veterans Memorial Building

Garden Room

4117 Overland Ave., Culver City, CA 90230



This interactive session will explore some common and not-so-common ways to price your graphic design work, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each. Dan will speak from experience in providing his own services, as well as a decade of hiring agencies and freelancers of all kinds while leading creative at Roland DGA.



About the Presenter


Dan Wilson is creative director at Roland DGA Corporation, a leading manufacturer of digital imaging technologies ranging from wide-format printers and cutters to 3D printing and milling machines. He is responsible for overseeing all of Roland’s online and offline marketing and communications. Dan works with an in-house team of designers and writers, as well as external freelancers and agencies to deliver a high quality and quantity of output. While the creative work is his passion, general business skills like strategy, management, and pricing/budgeting for creative services are critical to achieving successful results.



Free Parking


The Veterans Memorial Building, which is part of Culver City's Veterans Memorial Park complex, is located at the intersection of Culver Blvd. and Overland Ave. It's less than a mile east of the San Diego (405) Freeway (use the Venice Blvd. off-ramp and go south to Culver) and three miles south of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway's Overland Ave. exit. The Memorial Building is surrounded by tons of free parking. And that's THE most important thing, right?



Free Stylus


Free Allary-brand touch screen stylus to the first 10 people who purchase at least one raffle ticket. Assorted colors.
