Well, that depends how much time you plan on doing the design. What does the client want? A few designs so they can choose? Or will they take your first shot at a design?

It doesn’t really matter what you do (design, development, etc.), you should charge the client for the amount of time you spend.

If you come up with a design, the client wants changes, you tweak it, client wants more changes, you come up with something else again, client agrees and wants you to make a site, which will take you 10 hours…..there are so many possibilities that it would probably be a bad idea to charge by page.
