Questions

We just launched our startup with a designer helping us pro bono to spruce up the design of it. He's asking for compensation now (which is fair) and is willing to trade in his service for equity. Just wondering if it's better to pay than to trade equity for the service.

Pay. You'll only increase risk and waste by compensation with equity. Plus you cheapen your venture.
