Are you ready to have a retainer for a professional graphic designer? First of all, keeping a creative eye on your marketing collateral will have your mind at ease.
This will help you do what you do best and leave the graphic design tasks to the graphic design specialist! A retainer service is perfect for someone who needs design services throughout the quarter of business or even year.
1. Peace of mind – Confidence that project deadlines are met. It makes good business sense to have a graphic designer who cares about your label as much as you do.
2. Eye on the first project – Priority of each month for design projects. Getting the attention of designers on your project will give you the confidence that your brand will stay consistent with your company guidelines.
3. Accounting Simplification-For the duration of a retainer contract, a set amount is paid each month. That can help you stay organized and know that on the first of the month a specific amount is due.
4. Less Paperwork-Eliminate signing agreements per project and monitoring several invoices. If you employ a graphic designer on a retainer, you do not have to do continuous paperwork.
5. No Payroll Overload-No needs to hire an employee and without the cost associated with hiring an employee, you have access to a skilled designer.
6. Discount – You get a lower rate compared to the premium freelance fees, based on the monthly hourly price. This could save you time and money, it is a win, it's a win.
Typically a retainer's term would go something like this: – Minimum of a three-month commitment to hire a retainer graphic designer. For example, the monthly hours maybe 10 hours, 20 hours, or 30 hours a month depending on what you think is best for your company and how much work you have to give out each month. A collaboration call between you and your designer will make clear how many hours the designer will assign to your design tasks for a month.
