Ever fancied having your own personal graphic designer?

Is a retainer right for your business?

A retainer is ideal when you're starting something new, and you know you'll need to have things designed for your business, but you're not 100% sure what these are yet. A retainer allows you to make decisions within a set allowance, keeping things lean and clean.

If you have an established business, a retainer can help you budget and plan ahead by taking the guesswork out of design costs. Having an "in-house" designer also gives you peace of mind, because you'll know that everything is on-brand and created to grow your impact (and profits).

How do retainers work?

With Client Retainers, you buy a block of time from us to secure our services for a period of 3, 6 or 12 months. Retainers start at 5 hours, and can go as high as 15 hours a month.

Projects 'rates' are calculated in hour-blocks, so you can budget what to do with your month's hours, and you'll receive a weekly update on time used, and time remaining.

We're also happy to work as part of your team. With Team Integration, we can attend regular meetings and collaborate with others on a daily basis.



To ensure the very best experience we only take on a limited number of retainer clients.
