So basically I got a logo designed for my startup through a friend who is a graphic designer, I wish to be fair and pay for the task. It was a small logo and nothing too fancy and took a couple of days to work on. Im wondering how much should I pay for this job.

Brand Identity is everything. It will show your brand's vision and values. The designer has gone through a thought process in order to design the logo (no matter how small or big).

The price should depend upon the skills of the designer, her/his portfolio of past work, her/his understanding of your startup concept and her/his ability to turn that concept into a visual identity.

Your logo is the altimate identity of your business or brand, as a matter of fact, everything you build from your letterhead, business card, even the painting of your office will be derived from the color scheme of that logo...logo if spectacular is eternal in business and the soul of your brand...take Coca Cola for instance. So pay him well even if it has to be installments.

The final payment depends upon Two things. 1st : If you had a verbal discussion prior to the job been handed over to the designer, then the Amount finalized has to be honored when the task is finished as per your satisfaction. 2nd : If the fees have not been discussed previously then the Pay Structure depends upon the work involved in the assigned task. A Combination of Logo and the Symbolic Representation of the firm is charged anywhere from 5000/- by a freelancer to 25000 by a reputed design firm. As you Say he/she is a Friend. A Envelope Containing 2500/- With Warm Thanks will Suffice..........

Being fair is so spot on. It has nothing to do with the logo being small. Think of the creativity and hours that went into the final product. Your friend had to take you as person, your startup idea, your corporate identity and what you want to portray to the world around you into account, when coming up with the final logo. If one of our graphic designer work on a brand new logo, taking a couple of days, we would charge R350 to R650 per a 3-hour design project. If we design a new startup logo and corporate identity, we bill a customer from R5000 to R6500, as it is so much work. Work that back to your currency and then decide what's fair.
