Emotes Creation scope of work total: $1,000

This project is designed to be delivered on Twitch and Discord, and the outlined phases and pricing are pretty straightforward. 

Our top emotes design scope of work template breaks down the design process into two stages:

  • Stage 1: Static
  • Stage 2: Animated

The first phase focuses on designing the static images that the emote design will be based on, and the second phase is all about bringing those designs to life.

While this specific scope of work template includes 3 designs for overall project, you can easily adjust the deliverables and pricing when you use this scope for your next proposal. 

This is a small project and can be a great option for illustrators who are just getting started, building their side hustle, or who want to increase the volume of projects you take on. But if you’re looking for something that helps you build your freelance business and secure recurring income, consider proposing a retainer using this scope of work.
