Hello. I do web design. And at the moment for the main page take about 5 thousand p. For inner pages from 1 thousand.R. And, it is from not knowing the price policy, now climbed to the Internet to look up prices. And I know that the economy designer. Because there, behind the home page take 20 thousand. Your work is not evaluated as bad. Just always consider myself a web design student and this is afraid of taking more money. And it will be always, because trends change very quickly. And constantly need to adapt and learn. Have impudent in the future and charge for their work anymore. And you know why? Because to develop a design manual labor. In this is invested a lot of effort and patience. It's not just took it and drew a picture, as it seems from the outside. Any not your profession sounds like "It's none of my business, he will handle it easily, because he is a professional, che is there to do?". There is not easy. Certainly you have skills from which to do the job easier, but the practical work. What happens in the end to your skills. So you pay for a SKILL which you do not have and for the implementation of the skill.
40K for a good website, it's reasonable price. But again. In Russia, many are doing what was once learned and not follow trends. They can take a lot of money, not realizing that their experience is outdated, but they are doing it for many years. And I think that this price is worthy of their work, and maybe more. But this is no way. Their work is impaired.
For example, the design of this website is Flat. He is now in trend. And it is already obsolete because Google came up with Material design. It is almost the same as this, only added Tenyukh under button, to make it seem that it can be pressed.
Before you order a design, it is necessary to dig a little and learn to be able to assess what will be able to offer you these designers in the end. They may not be worth the money offered for the work.
A site redesign is usually cheaper. Since all remains the same, just in a different form.
On the timing, a good design has no expiration.
Everyone always want everything now. The design is not good, because you can get a complete unsatisfactory work. As an artistic profession, sometimes there are blunted, sitting in front of the monitor for two hours and can't figure out how to paste it here. And when there is time, you just stick it in there, though, but you are not satisfied, but we need to take. It is not good. For this there need to be patience. Otherwise you spoil the mood itself, the designers and get shit project.
