Price Lock-ups Helvetica Neue

Greetings everyone. Love some advice on type treatments for price lockups that look elegant on screen. Have a client who employs Helvetica Neue (licensed) as it's corporate type face and I'm struggling to create an elegant system for displaying potentially verbose number amounts. Example: $329.87 looks fine small but at larger sizes gets clunky. Any thoughts or comments appreciated.

Adjust billing on a layout project?

Forums: 

Hey, Typophiles! Turning to you for advice: I bill by the project, and have just finished laying out a report that I billed at 2.25 days. Only problem is that (for once!) I overestimated how long it would take – I really worked about 1.5 "days" on the project, including admin.

My question: do I follow-up once the project closes and adjust my fee downward, making clear the reason? Or do I take the money and run, since we all agreed on the scope and the rate in advance?

Pricing for use in software

Please direct me to the appropriate thread if this topic already exists.

I was contacted by a company that wants to license my typeface for distribution in their software package. The typeface is currently available for free and has a very limited character support (caps only and no diacritics, but that doesn't seem to concern them).

How do I price something like this? What follow-up questions might I ask?

Hi all, I had a hard time finding an appropriately close answer to my question elsewhere so I'll ask it outright. My studio is working on a custom sans serif font for a client (lc, UC, #s and punct). We started with just the end product in mind but now the client wants to buy the font outright so no other usage or distribution will be permitted. I have NO idea where to start with pricing something like this out. Any advice would be great. _w

Type Design: Freelance Pricing Advice

Forums: 

I am a designer, and over the past 2 years I have created several typefaces (Latin 9). I have done this at my salaried job. I also do freelance design and have recently been asked to give someone a quote for a Latin 9 San-serif character set. Does anyone out there have a general pricing guide they use for freelance type design?
