Retainer Services

Perfect for businesses who need design assets & marketing materials on a regular basis, but don't want to employ a full-time designer.

Benefits of a retainer service

  • 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 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 QUALITY – You get the access to a professional designer without the overhead costs of an employee and the tech required for a designer. Keep your brand looking top-notch and cohesive always!

let me help you get your time & Sanity back!


How it works

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, I will block out my schedule with the appropriate amount of hours each month and plan my workload accordingly.

You'll 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! You'll benefit from my expertise (and speed!), and the ROI to your business is an unbeatable value!

  • My retainer packages are for clients who already have their basic brand guidelines and logo in place. New branding/logo designs do not fall under this service.
  • A minimum 3-month commitment is required. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evaluate your package level to ensure the number of hours are fitting your business needs. After that, we can move to 6, 9, or 12 month commitments, OR we can take it one month at a time if that's your preference.
  • A set number of hours is allocated each month for your projects. Unused hours expire at the end of each month. They do not roll over, as that would defeat the purpose of a project retainer. This is to ensure that I leave adequate time for your projects and plan my workload accordingly.
  • I will let you know if we are running close to hitting your monthly hours. If additional time is needed for the month, you will be made aware before I work extra. Additional hours are billed at my standard hourly rate of $120/hr.
  • You will be invoiced on the same day each month, for the month ahead. Your invoice date will be dependent on when you started your retainer service. Invoice will include the monthly retainer rate, as well as any additional charges from previous month.

What type of work is included in a retainer?

How do I get started?

I need this!

Either send me an email or contact me. We will set up a consultation so I can hear more about your projects and ongoing needs. Once the first month’s payment is received, I will set up all your projects within my monthly schedule. Every 30 days, we'll 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.
