I work for a company launching a new website that will be selling t-shirts related to several popular TV shows. We are in need of additional t-shirt designs and are looking for a freelance designer to help come up with a few things. I came across your portfolio and feel like your style may fit what we need. I am making initial inquires to find out the following:
What is your rate per hour for a project like this? We have general direction for what we want but will need help further developing concepts.
Do you have a minimum rate per project?
How long would you estimate it would take you to do a t-shirt design for a project like this?
I’ve looked at your posted portfolio, but are there are specific works that exemplify your work and style?
What is your current availability?
(I've entered numbers for budget and timeline, as they are required, but we are really just starting to make inquiries to understand what a realistic budget and timeline are.)
If you have any interest, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to your reply.
