Hello there young lads.

I was recently hired for a large project. It involves me creating a graphic design for a website that is something like cnet.com. It consists of 40+ pages. I have to design every single page.

Well I have one problem. I do not know how much to charge. The client says he absolutely loves my example design that I showed him.
How much should I charge him. Keep in mind, that this project will take me a good amount of time.

Thank you,

how long is "a good amount of time?" a week? a month? a year? does 40+ mean 40, give or take a page or 2, or does it mean upwards of 100+ pages?

charge him 5 million dollars. that should cover it.
Did I help you? Feeling generous? Buy me lunch! 
Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Break it down into small chunks and estimate how long each will take you to do. Decide how much our time is worth per hour.

Cost = time x rate/hr + profit margin.
If you are still using mysql_ functions, STOP! Use mysqli_ or PDO. The longer you leave it the more you will have to rewrite.
