Creative Retainer Packages
Who's it for?
I help small businesses close that gap between hiring a full time graphic designer and producing high quality digital and print design for their marketing. This creative retainer is a agreement between your business and mine that allows you to contract hours of service at a discount.
A creative retainer gives you instant access to a wide range of professional design and marketing services minus the overhead associated with a permanent employee or a high priced design or marketing services.
For multiple small projects, you can take advantage of your combined work volume, and avoid the need to seek estimates, manage multiple contracts, and pay multiple invoices. A creative retainer can also stabilize your services budget.
You create your package by choosing the number of design hours you need.
“consider yourself BRANDED” offers packages ranging from 6 to 72 hours:
Full payment of the total package you pick is due before the agreement begins.

Is a creative retainer right for you?
Meeting the on-going branding needs of your business can be tricky. If your communication design needs vary throughout the year, arise unexpectedly, or you have ongoing needs for design services that don’t require having a designer on staff, a creative retainer might be the perfect solution for your business.
What are the advantages of a creative retainer?
By entering a creative retainer agreement, you can save up to 40% on services. The more hours you commit to, the lower your hourly rate is. With a creative retainer, “consider yourself BRANDED” reserves your retainer time exclusively for you, so even if you have rush work, or an unplanned need, I can respond to your needs immediately.
What services are included in a creative retainer?
Services may include: assistance in advertising and branding strategies; over the phone or email support; Design, Advertising, and Marketing Services; Photoshop work, Print Design, Social Media Designs/Postings. Brainstorming & Creative Direction; Creative promotions; in print and online resources.
Unused hours never expire.
What services are not included in a creative retainer agreement?
A creative retainer does not include Logo Design, Identity Systems, Brand Strategy, Website Design, Newsletters, Blogs or Video creation.
Nor does it cover expenses like printing, stock photography licensing, and subcontractor fees. I will consult with you before beginning work to identify any fees or costs that may be billed in addition to your creative retainer agreement.
Will I receive an accounting of my hours?
Each month, I will prepare a report that shows all of the time I have spent on your projects.
* What if I need more hours of service but I have run out of hours in the package I pre-purchased ?
I understand that there may be times when a unexpected project or projects may occur. When and if this happens I will honor your current retainer rate and create a separate invoice based on the amount of additional hours you request.
*Limited to two extra projects per retainer period. Additional hours must be no less then 4 hours and no more than 12 hours. All service hours must be paid in full before any new project begins.
