Retainer Services

Are you looking for a partner and advisor to take your business to the next level? Do you have work on a monthly basis but don’t want to hire a designer full time? I’m here for you. Let me help you get back to the things you love doing and I can take care of things behind the scenes with less paper work and simplified accounting.  

You want to grow your business- I am here when you need me

A retainer fee is a monthly fee paid up front each month before work is ordered. Based on the retainer package you select, I will block out my schedule to do the things you need. You have peace of mind knowing you will receive a pre-established amount of work each month without having to worry about what other projects may be ahead of you. You’ll also receive a discount on my regular hourly rate.

Perfect + Pretty

I will actually read what you give me to make pretty. Then I'll make it look great.

I give you all of the files you need for any opportunity that comes your way.

Honest advice

I am an advisor-not just a service provider. I'm honest with you about your brand.
