how much should i charge?

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I am trying to find an average hourly rate for a graphic designer. I’m a full-time industrial designer and a friend of mine who is starting his own business asked me to design some labels for his products. I don’t need the money, but he wants to make it ligit and pay me the going rate. Anyone have any insight?

I used a consulting designer who charged $60/hr for catalog layout. He would probably charge that for interactive work too, because time is time to him. It varies quite a bit though, as younger/less experienced designer probably charge less.

Thanks. That at least gives me a ballpark idea.

Anyone else have any examples? Or are there reports/websites where I can research what an average hourly rate may be?
