Participate in the Surveys for the 15th Edition of The Handbook

Handbook of Pricing & Ethical Guidelines montage

Fill out our survey, and get into the Handbook!*

Designers, illustrators, animators, cartoonists: for 44 years, Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines has helped so many to launch their careers. Help us launch the next edition!

For the next edition of the Handbook, and we're asking experienced designers, illustrators, website designers, animators, and other visual artists to fill out our anonymous pricing surveys. We’re conducting these surveys to gather information about industry pricing practices and how self-employed graphic artists price their services. The data collected in our surveys will be used to update the pricing guidelines in the 15th edition of the Handbook.

The information you provide will be published anonymously. You will not be asked any personal contact information. The only thing we ask is that you have the equivalent of at least 5 years of full-time experience in the disciplines of the surveys you choose to participate in. (Please consider completing as many surveys in disciplines you work in as possible!) Each survey should take approximately 10–15 minutes to complete.

Survey Deadline is May 1!

* Your data will be used anonymously in the pricing charts of the 15th edition of the Handbook.
