What is a retainer program?

A retainer fee is the perfect monthly solution if you have on-going design work you need throughout the year, but don’t want to hire a full-time designer on your staff. The purpose of a retainer program is to secure a professional designer to help with all your design needs and build a long term relationship with someone who knows your brand. It is paid for upfront, each month before work begins. Each month, a block of time will be allocated, just for you, within my schedule. This gives me the ability to plan my workload ahead a time and allows you to meet any deadlines you have.


Why a retainer program is for you?

  • Savings & Discounts – You get a discounted rate on all of your design projects. The more hours you commit to, the lower the rates you receive.

  • More Time & Peace of Mind – You will get priority! Since you are paying in advance, a block of time is already allocated to you each month. You can set deadlines with peace of mind that your project will be complete before they hit.

  • Professional Designs – no need to worry about designing your own projects or learning photoshop – leave the work to us.

I’m interested… how do we get started?

  • Once the order is placed, we will set up a consultation to hear more about your projects. Please note, the retainer program is only for clients who already have their basic brand guidelines and logo complete.

  • Once the first month’s payment is received, I will set up all your projects within my monthly schedule. Prior to the beginning of each new month, I will schedule a call to review the next month’s work. During this time, we will also see if we need to adjust the number of hours reserved for you each month.
