RETAINER PROGRAM

Perfect for businesses who need marketing materials on a monthly basis,

but don't want to hire a full time designer. Let us help you get back to business!

WHY CHOOSE A

RETAINER PROGRAM?

  • If you know that you will need design services throughout the year, but don't want to hire a full-time designer, our retainer program is for you.

  • You get a discounted rate compared to my normal hourly rate and a la carte rates.

  • You have peace of mind with a guaranteed amount of work each month.

  • You pay a set amount each month for the duration of your contract and don't have to worry about fluctuating design fees.

  • You get the access to a professional designer without the overhead costs of an employee.

HOW DOES THE

RETAINER PROGRAM WORK?

A retainer fee is like a monthly design fee. It is paid up front each month before work is ordered. Essentially, you are paying for time versus a specific service. 

 

Based on the retainer package you select, we will block out our schedule with the appropriate amount of hours each month and plan our workload accordingly. You have peace of mind knowing that you will receive a pre-established amount of work each month, without having to worry about what other client projects are ahead of you!
