Retainer  Program

Hire Studio by Kimberly Ann’s Designs

Perfect for businesses who need marketing materials on a monthly basis, but don't want to hire a full time designer. 

Who Is This For:

  • Startup businesses that need creative direction to get their brand noticed and build a consistent brand

  • Established businesses that need ongoing creative services guidance from an experienced designer

  • Creative agencies who need reliable support from an experienced designer

How Does It Work:

  • There is a 3 month minimum commitment. At the end of your 3 months, we will evaluate the program to be sure that the number of hours are fitting your business needs.

  • Each retainer includes a set number of hours per month. Overage in hours each week will be billed at the standard hourly rate of $70 per hour. A notification will be sent when approaching your monthly hours usage.

  • Unused hours expire at the end of each month. This is to ensure that I can allow time for your projects and plan my workload accordingly.

  • You will get an invoice on the first day of each month. Invoice will include the monthly retainer rate for that month and any additional charges from previous month. 

  • You have 3 business days to make the payment for that month or the contract will be terminated unless written agreements are made.

  • During intake process we will discuss and setup your projects needed for a month in our client’s dashboard. You will be able to see how much time was spent on each project, access files, leave comments, and view updates.

  • Prior to the upcoming month, we will have a conference call or video chat to review the next month's priorities. Payment for the month ahead will be due on the 1st of each month.

  • We will repeat the process each month for the remainder of the program you selected.

  • At the end of the 3 months, we will review the entire process to see if we need to adjust the numbers of hours or move forward.
