Why PSD costs 10$, HTML 15 $ and WP 40 $-50$ here?

Bottom line. End of discussion.

Also, take into consideration themes development ‘allow’ programmer to ‘reuse’ most of the codes/functions/widgets. So, you may only create 20% – 40% new codes in your next themes. Once you have your solid backend framework, your work become easier. However, the designer need to ‘create’ or ‘modify’ the same elements and put them into a ‘theme’.

So, when the developer is providing support, the designer can start creating new designs and ideas. If, he knows a little about HTML /CSS, then he can provide support for the front end bit as well.

I think 50-50 is fair for long run and happy collaboration, but considering the designer should at least know html/css.

@FinalDestiny The 50/50 profit sharing is fair, man.

the idea is very important to me. You have no idea, you absolutely CAN ’T do anything.

Themico said Why PSD costs 10$, HTML 15 $ and WP 40 $-50$ here?

Let’s make a calculation: WP – (PSD + HTML ) = 40 – (10+15) = $20. so only $20 for WP

$40 – $50 for the whole work you have to do from scratch to finish. Draw your ideas, convert it to html and wordpress.

PSD $10
HTML $15
WP $45

To export images from PSD to HTML (which is a lot of work) + $5 for design process.

WP $45 – (PSD $15 + HTML $15) = $15 only for wordpress coding. Each process is roughly the same amount of cost.

This is actually pointless we are never going to agree. And we pointed out more times, that time spent on work in this case is irrelevant!
By the way, do you need a dev? Just asking, because i see a nice PSD ’s in your account but no HTML or WP…

thanks for your interest, have quite a few request, but i employed some more guys and we started to code it hopefully will be getting first stuff out in few days.

Obviously the design guys will never agree, but a good developer is harder to find than a good designer. A good developer is MORE EXPENSIVE than a good designer. I’m not talking about the big guys on TF here, I’m talking generally.

I’ll be needing a developer for a premium photography theme completed in about 3 or 4 days…

A theme in 3-4 days? There was a few days ago one guy asking if a theme with just index.php and style.css is enough for themeforest. You can definitely try contacting him. ;p

Lol…I should have phrased that differently…sorry, my mistake…I meant I would need a developer for a theme that I would finish the psd for in about 3 – 4 days. In other words, it would take me 3 or 4 days more to complete the theme(psd) after which I would be needing a developer for said theme. :)
