*I asked a second year college student to design a company logo and a basic template layout for my site. Straight HTML, no scripts or programming involved. How do you discuss pricing? Is it on a per project basis? Per task (i.e. logo, template layout, etc)?*
For a standard template with a logo, I would pay him a set fee as there is no real time scale for charging by the hour.
He could say X amount for X amount of hours. That could be more costly then say a set fee.
Try and get a balance.
60-100 dollars is an appropriate figure for this type of thing.
Hope this helps.
Your best option is to decide on a budget and work with the student on it. Remember, your idea of a basic layout and some one else's idea of what a basic layout is may be wildly different.
