Need a Hand?
Perfect for those who have enough marketing materials needed on a monthly basis, but don't want to hire a full-time designer. A retainer contract is like a monthly fee.

Graphic Design Retainer Details:
3 month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evalaute the program to ensure the number of hours are fitting your business needs. After that, we can move to 6, 9, or 12 month commitments.
Each retainer includes a set number of hours per week. Overage in hours each week will be billed at the standard hourly rate of $65 per hour.
Unused hours expire at the end of each week. This is to ensure that I can allocate time for your projects each week and plan my workload accordingly.
