Please help! I am really confused about how to charge people for design work.

Currently I am designing a postcard/A5 double sided flyer as a freelancer and maybe as a one-off but could be more work after this.

My questions are:

How long should a postcard design front and back take?
And what is the norm on charging for something like this?.

The client has given me their logo and a brief of what is the purpose of this flyer and their website link to do research about them. They would like to see what I can come up with which probably means they don't really know what they want.

I am a graphic print designer who loves trying to create new things and sometimes gets too passionate about the design that I end up using more hours than the client probably needs.

I have been working in the design industry for roughly 2 years now as a freelancer in a company and on small monthly contracts.
This is a client I would like to win over so I don't want to over charge or under charge him either.

Please let me know what do you think?

If you have anymore questions then please do ask me.
