Creative Retainers

Have you ever wished you could afford to hire a designer to help you on the regular?

How awesome would that be? To be able to just send an email and have someone make your blog graphics look nice, without you having to do a damn thing. Or having someone right there to throw that flyer design together for your new listing, brand your social graphics, and design your new business cards. 

I might be bias, but I personally am more willing to let go of my hard earned money when I feel like the person I'm giving it to is a pro. And unfortunately, no matter how great you are, it can be hard to make yourself look like a pro when you're trying to learn how to be a designer on top of that. 

Professional quality graphics can up your game substantially, and immediately. 

So what do you do when you aren't ready to bring on a designer full time but you still want to look like you are?

You set the budget by choosing how many hours you'd like to reserve, and every month I'll set aside those hours just for you and your projects so you can focus on the parts of your business you enjoy! It's like having a graphic designer on staff, without the added stress (and cost) of bringing on a new employee. 

You'll get a few exclusive benefits for being a retainer client as well. You'll be paying a discounted freelance rate (up to $15 off per hour), your projects will always have priority on my calendar, and you'll have access to services I no longer offer on a one-by-one basis, like infographic and book cover design for example.

Each package has a three month introductory contract so that after three months we can take a look at how things are going and make sure you have the best package for your needs.

How It Works:

To get started, you'll click the Get Started button to send me an email. Make sure to give me a short description of the type of projects you'll be wanting me to take on! I'll get back to you ASAP with any questions I have, answer any questions you might have, and I'll send over a contract and invoice for your first month if everything looks good, and as soon as those are signed and paid I'll be ready to schedule your projects! 

You can use your time a couple of different ways. If you have ongoing projects throughout the month with no particular schedule you can email me as you have design needs. Depending on the size of the project I may be able to take care of it immediately or it might be 24-48 hours. I'll track your used time and let you know when you get close to running out.

You can also schedule your project time for specific days of the month, as long as you're able to give me at least one week's notice.
