Hey guys, I have an idea for a custom art product that would require an artist. I am no artist by any means, so my only option would be to hire a freelancer to be my designer.
Does anyone have experience in hiring a freelancer as an employee? How would this work? This is not the same as hiring someone for a singular job such as creating a logo or designing your website. How do you go about getting into communication with a freelance artist about this specifically? Do I pay him/her by the hour or by the job? Also, how do you ensure uniformity across all products if say, I need to hire a second freelancer as I scale in to the future.
I honestly see potential in this idea of mine, but finding an artist who would be willing to take this on with me is the only limiting factor.
