RETAINER PACKAGES

Graphic Design Retainer Program

A retainer is the perfect monthly solution for ongoing design work  that you need throughout the year. 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 for the number of hours within your selected package. This allows me to meet any deadlines you may have and gives me the ability to plan workload ahead of time.

Why choose a retainer?

  • 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.

  • Less Paperwork -  Eliminate contracts to sign and multiple invoices to track on a per project basis. 

  • More Time & Peace of Mind –  You get priority!  Since you are paying in advance, a block of time is already allocated for you each month. You can set deadlines knowing 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 me.

Ready to get started?

  1.  Fill out the form below or send me an email and we will set up a 30-minute phone call​ to get to know about your business, review your needs and upcoming projects.  ( The retainer program is for repeat clients, so if we haven't yet worked together, let's start by working on something like a branding package, website, or other design materials first. )

  2. ​Once the contract is signed and 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.

  3. Repeat. We will repeat the process each month for the remainder of the program you selected. 

  4. Reevaluate. At the end of your contract, we will review the program to see if you want to adjust the number of hours reserved each month before signing again!
