Design Retainer Services 

Have a designer on your team every month without hiring a full-time employee.

What is a Retainer?

A design retainer gives you access to a variety of professionally designed marketing materials for an allocated number of hours each month at a reduced rate. A designer works with your company each month to create almost any design project you need for your business including branding, printed and digital materials, website updates and more. Think about it as having your own in-house designer without having to pay to have a full time employee on staff.

Retainer Benefits:

Access to your own in-house professional designer for almost any design project.

Brainstorm ideas and create strategies for your business with your own design consultant.

Develop and maintain strong branding for your company every month.

Create consistency with your marketing, branding and messaging.

Your design projects will get priority with a block of time allocated each month to you.

Save money on a design retainer's discounted price compared to a normal hourly rate.

I am here to help your business long-term in any way that I can, your company’s success is my goal!

Why a Retainer Program?

Over the years I have dedicated my business to creating and maintaining strong brands for my clients. Branding is the core of any company and it grows and evolves as the business moves forward. I always want to make sure I can be an asset to my clients and help them achieve their branding and business goals as much as possible.

One brochure here, and a flier design four years later doesn’t benefit the brand and business like it use to. As a society the number of advertising messages we see everyday continues to increase. The one-and-done model of design isn’t as beneficial to companies as it was in the past and that is why I created the design retainer program.

The design retainer program allows me to become apart of my client’s team to develop and maintain their brand on a consistent basis each month. I am able to work with my clients and be the ambassador of their brand’s messaging creating design materials that are versatile and made strategically for them. My purpose for this program is to give your company a voice and grow your brand into the recognizable image you want it to become.

* If your business needs more hours than those provided in the three design retainer packages, you can contact me and I will be happy to create a design retainer package specifically for your business!

Have design projects at your fingertips:

Branding & Identity Services:

Another amazing benefit to this program is that I will begin to know your brand inside and out. I can take the projects you give me and design them faster and more consistently following your brand messaging, color schemes, imagery and more creating a lasting and memorable brand.

Brand identity/style sheet design, brand development and maintenance, mood board creation, stationary/letterhead designs, business cards, branded clothing/merchandise, and *some logo design variations and revisions.

* Corporate Logo Design takes a lot of planning and time and for that reason new logo designs do not fall under this program. However logo variations or logo edits can be created under this program.

Design Strategies:

My purpose for this program is to give your company a voice and grow your brand into the recognizable image you want it to become. Together we will figure out your needs and brainstorm ideas to create design strategies that will benefit your business.

Design should be versatile, consistent and tailor made to fit your company’s strategic advantages. When design is versatile it opens up more possibilities for your company and strengthens your brand.

Print Materials:

Your design project files will be formatted and sized specifically for each print marketing material. Printed materials include brochures, newsletters, fliers, postcards, signage, product packaging, newspaper/magazine advertising and more.

Digital Materials:

Digital Materials include branded PowerPoint slide designs, email marketing templates and strategies, email signatures,  website banners, blog article images, video editing and more.

Website Revisions & Maintenance:

Website page creation*, edits to current website pages, monthly maintenance, security monitoring, Search Engine Optimization improvements, blog article uploads and more.

* Website Updates and Maintenance can only be handled if your current website was already been created by me or uses WordPress. Given the amount of time and planning for website design new website development services are considered extra. Please email me at create@cierrarosedesign.com for a website consultation and estimate.

Social Media Graphics:

Social Media has taken center stage for many business’s marketing plans and there are a variety of social media networks to choose from including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube and others.

With a design retainer I can create Social Media strategies for each platform, set up a content calendar for your business, create branded social media images for each platform, create post content for images, cover photo designs, profile photo designs and Facebook/Instagram Ads.*

*Does not include social media monitoring or posting.

Miscellaneous Design Projects:

I love to help create any project a client needs and there are many unique and fun design projects that I can create as well. If you have a project that isn’t listed here please contact me and we will see if your additional project falls under this program or if we need to make a special plan for it.

Retainer Details:

A minimum 3-month commitment is required for all retainer packages. After that period we will reevaluate your project needs and see if we should make changes to your plan to better fit your business goals. 

Each month we will meet or call to discuss your current design projects as well as plan/strategize next month’s projects and their timeframes.

Depending on the retainer package chosen, there will be a set number of hours allocated each month where I will dedicate time to working on your projects.

If some months need more time in addition to the retainer package’s set amount of hours, I will inform you if we are running close to hitting your monthly time.

We will then discuss the options available and either hold off on any design work until the coming month or continue working on the project as extra billable time at my standard hourly rate.

I will allow half an hour of unused monthly hours to roll over each month. Other hours unused will expire at the end of each month.

Cierra is a joy to work with and has helped me create many brands, PowerPoint slide presentations, books covers, fliers and more for my businesses. She “dresses me up to go to the dance,” and makes my business look good to my customers. We brainstorm ideas in our meetings and she can just roll with it and create professional designs based on my goals, target market and branding.
