I’m curious how many hours a decent logo sting takes to create. I appreciate that it will vary considerably based on the complexity of the work, and a template that may have taken ages might sell less than a template that was whipped up in a day, it’s always a bit of a dark art. But is there an average that it usually takes for people? 10 hours, 25, 50, 100, 200?
I’m thinking of hiring somebody to create one or more logo stings for me that I can add to my portfolio. I’m good on the technical side of After Effects, but I’m not that good when it comes to design, or planning out a project, or envisaging what a great logo sting template would look like.
I’m thinking of this as a kind of investment, as I’m hoping to do a bit of travelling next year, looking for where I’m going to live, and it would be nice to boost my monthly sales figures a bit with a solid AE project in my portfolio. I pay out a bunch of cash for somebody to make it, and then hopefully it’s paid for itself after 3/6/9 months and then it’s pure profit.
I guess the benefit for the person making the template would be guaranteed payment and less risk, although they’ll probably make less than they might have done over the long term. I guess the total price depends not only on how long it will take, but how much the freelancer in question charges… so the upper and lower amounts could vary considerably, but any idea what I should be expecting to pay for this kind of thing?
$100, $250, $500, $1000, $2000?
And if anybody would be interested and has a rough idea of price for me, then feel free to drop me a line through my profile.
Ta very much!
