Agencies are usually qualified to deliver a high-quality graphic design project, but are also the most expensive option as they usually work with large budgets.

Some agencies can charge separate fees for the revision process. This is where the hourly rate will likely enter in, which can cost anywhere from $74 to $350 an hour.

While the average hourly rate of a freelance designer is $45 on Upwork, you can hire someone cheaper, for as a low as $20/hour. The lower your budget, the higher the pressure to find a quality hire.

On the other side of the spectrum, skilled designers charge on average 23% more than standard and all the way up to $150 per hour. Facing these rates, it’s tough for small businesses and solopreneurs to foot the bill.

Apart from location, a graphic designer’s salary will significantly depend on the level of experience.

In the United States, a graphic designer with 8+ years of experience earns about $77k per year and an entry-level designer can make up to on average $45k a year.

Don’t overlook other design costs: Hiring an in-house graphic designer often comes with hidden fees, such as Adobe Creative Cloud subscription. The suite includes Photoshop and Illustrator, which will cost you about $34 a month of business subscription fees alone.
