What is the hourly rate of a web designer? Or, what is the price of a UX/UI designer? As a digital project manager, product owner, marketing manager or developer, you probably now recognize the importance of a positive user experience. You want to remove as many obstacles as possible for visitors to an existing or new website, you want to offer them a good experience on both desktop and mobile. If you don't have enough knowledge about this yourself, you look for an expert. But how much does it cost to reserve this expertise?
What is the hourly rate of a web designer?
To answer that question, it is important to understand that nowadays you can divide web designers, also in Belgium, into different types of designers. Think of the following profiles:
Senior UX designer or service designer
Based on conversations with fellow designers, the maximum hourly rates that government agencies charge for a tender and the prices that customers pay us, I know that an experienced UX or service designer in Belgium has an hourly rate of between 70 and 100 euros, excluding VAT.
So you can expect a lot for that. An experienced designer has between 10 and 20 years of experience (these professions do not exist in Belgium for much longer) and can help you with, for example:
Junior UX/UI designer
For a younger or less experienced UX/UI designer, the hourly rates are between 40 and 60 euros excluding VAT. I deduce this from the prices that freelancers ask on freelance platforms, such as Freelancer.be, but also from a rate survey by freelance network . For an hourly rate between 40 and 60 euros, you should rather think of executive work, such as
UX Coach wants to close the gap between the supply and demand of web designers . We always offer a design team of 2 people: 1 UX designer with more than 15 years of experience in working with various clients for various sectors, who works together with a young designer with a lot of ambition and talent for UX / UI design. As a result, we offer quality, the price remains affordable and we allow new designers to grow in the profession, so that the number of experienced designers in Belgium grows.
