Average day rate for an ACD in NYC? Thanks.

Can we all please agree that $1k is the minimum ACD rate, and $1200 is the minimum CD rate (based on a 9-10 hour day, if you have to charge per hour). Folks taking less bring us all down.

$1200 with some awards, $1500 with many awards.

Honestly, would be shocked if an ACD got $1500, regardless of awards. Lots of CDs aren’t getting that these days.

Low indeed. I'm getting $1000+ as a senior CW.

I generally charge about $1100-$1300. I went down to $850 once because I was bored. But I don’t think that’s the norm for most of us.

In LA I ask for 1300, they counter with 1100 and we settle on 1200. I don’t know why NY rate would be much less.

I do CD and Design and my day rate is $680. Am I super low?

Then I guess it depends on how many hours you’re working during that day and if you’re double dipping. I still think you could be getting closer to 800 for an 8 hr work day.
