I do all design work on an hourly basis, with an estimate on projects large enough to warrant the time to prepare it. A person could spend a several hours to several weeks designing a logo, depending on whether you are very small business or a big corporation.
A good idea to get the $$ sorted out before too much time is spent. Tell them how much you want to spend, and ask them if it is a realistic goal.
