Retainer Program

Why choose a retainer program?

  • If you know that you will  need design services thoughout the year, but don't want to hire a  full-time designer, my 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 it 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, I will block out my 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, without having to worry about what other client projects are  ahead of you!
