Perfect for those who know they will need design services throughout the month and want to reserve Queen K’s time!

Essentially, you are “pre-ordering” projects and design time versus individual projects.  

Why choose a retainer program?

Plan your project deadlines with peace of mind – The guarantee priority over non-retainer clients. 

  • Discounts – You get discounted rates compared to normal freelance fees. The more hours you commit, the lower the hourly rate.

  • Consistent, Quality Work –  The quality and design language will be consistent across all of your projects.

  • Extremely fast turn-around for routine tasks – such as turning out new versions of existing designs or making edits.
  • Simplified Accounting – You pay a set amount each month for the duration of the retainer contract.

  • Establishes a long-term relationship with a designer – avoiding the need to continually interview and brief a new designer for each project that comes up.
  • No Overhead – you get access to a professional designer without the overhead associated with an employee.

Graphic Designer Retainer Details:
  • 3-month minimum commitment. At the end of 3 months, we will re-evaluate the program you’re enrolled in to ensure the number of hours are fitting your business needs.
  • Each retainer contains a set number of projects each month. Overage in projects is billed at the standard hourly rate of $75 per project.

  • Unused projects do not roll over each month as that would defeat the purpose of allocating retainer for projects. If I am running close to hours hitting your project threshold, I will let you know before going over.

  • NOTE: The retainer program is for repeat clients ONLY!
