I would like to use a verb to describe the above situation. There are many professions like consultants,web designers which charge fees on project basis.
Example answer for above question would be :
I assign Max(freelance designer) to design a logo for my new coffee shop at 100$.
Are there any more fitting verbs other than assign to describe the situation? The closest word I found to describe is consign but it isn't expressive enough for what I would like to say.
