What should I do before hiring a designer for my mobile app?

Hello!

I have an idea for an app which I made a quick prototype in react/node before realizing that it would work much better as a mobile app. So I’ve been designing mobile screens to get the basic flow and information needed down, but it is looking very cold and theme-less. I think I want to reach out to some designers to hire someone to help bring the designs to life before I code them all up.

Before contacting designers though I thought I should have a game-plan. I was thinking I should finish my “cold” but practical designs, have some inspiration art, and a solid app pitch.

Questions:

What else should I have before contacting designers?

What should I look for in a designer?

How can I make sure that I convey the idea that is in my head (and sort of in the current designs)? I’m worried that I’ll explain it to them, pay them and then get something totally different back.

Any other pitfalls or recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
