Freelance Rates survey 2014: are you on the money?

Web designer Cole Henley's Freelance Rates survey (opens in new tab) began back in 2011, and the results have served as a reference source for many designers since. Now in its fourth year, Henley is once again asking creatives in the web industry to take the survey – which is completely anonymous – for three main reasons:

  • To take stock of rates charged in the UK for freelance work within the web industry
  • To offer a tool based on this information to help freelancers work out what they should and could realistically charge as a day rate
  • To help gather a picture of working conditions and lifestyle for freelancers in the UK

The survey should take between 5-10 minutes to complete, and information is only used to report general patterns and offer summary data.

You can find out more information and take the survey here (opens in new tab), and see the results published on the Mud website (opens in new tab). To get notification of when the results will be available, you can sign up to the Freelance Rates survey newsletter (opens in new tab).
