How about the opposite? First, take a test so that the freelancer can make sure you are a good enough client. If you pass, start paying the freelancer now through the end of the year. Potentially, if all goes well and you pay on time he may start doing regular work for you from then on.

haha :D. nicely put :)

This is absolute madness to expect anyone to work for free.

You have no money that is fine. Offer a percentage in the company for the designer. That way they will have a vested interest in the projects being great.

You can’t have someone work for you for free giving up their time where they could be making money and you sacrifice nothing in return.
