Graphic Design Retainer

Perfect for businesses who need marketing materials on a monthly basis,
but don’t want to hire a full-time designer.

How does this all work?

A retainer fee is like a monthly design fee. It is paid upfront each month before work is ordered. You’re 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 my workload accordingly. You have peace of mind knowing that you will receive a pre-established amount of work each month.

Why choose a retainer program?

  • If you know that you’ll 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 our normal hourly rate and a la carte rates.
  • You have peace of mind with a guaranteed amount of work each month.
  • You can easily manage a consistent budget every month by paying a set amount each month for the duration of your contract and don’t have to worry about fluctuating design fees.
  • You’ll get access to a professional design team without the overhead costs of an employee.


How long is the commitment?

We have a 3-month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evaluate the relationship to ensure the number of hours is working for your business needs. From there, we can move to 6, 9, or 12-month commitments.

Do hours carry over to the next month?

No, unused hours expire at the end of each week.

This is to ensure that we can allocate time for your projects each week and plan our workload accordingly.

When will I get invoiced?

You will get a report on the first of every month summarizing the work from last month.
