Hi all! 👋
I've received an unexpected email from a game developer (of those classic online girly games where you dress Elsa for prom)
looking to hire me for 2D graphics work to develop assets for their new project.
They seem very friendly and legit, so no worries there, saying they found me via ArtStation and think my style suits what they're looking for, and I'm interested. They sent along a brief with graphical and technical and requirements too.
However they've asked me for my rates and availability and as a current student I'm not sure what to say!
Personally I'm happy to work part time round my university hours but I'm not sure if they'd accept this or how to tell them that in a more professional way? And I have no clue what my rates should be or how I'd work this out if I'm working without certain hours?
Would it be best to ask for more detail on what exactly I'd be doing and what they're expecting?
If anyone has any advice or suggestions they'd be more than appreciated!! 😊😅
