Graphic Design Retainer

A graphic design retainer ensures that your business always has fresh, unique, professional graphics to share.

You can afford to have professional graphic designer in your back pocket

Our graphic design retainer is the perfect solution for businesses looking for ongoing graphic design support. With this retainer, you'll have access to a dedicated graphic designer who will work closely with you to understand your brand and design needs.

The retainer includes a set number of design hours each month, which can be used for a variety of projects, such as website updates, social media graphics, print materials, email newsletters, and more. You can choose to use your hours for one large project or spread them out over multiple smaller ones, giving you the flexibility to prioritize your design needs based on your business goals.

When you sign up for any of our Graphic Design Retainer plans, we’re here for you whenever inspiration strikes.

With our Graphic Design Retainer, you'll have peace of mind knowing that your design needs are being taken care of by a team of professionals who are invested in the success of your business. Plus, with a retainer, you can avoid the hassle of finding a new designer for each project and benefit from a more streamlined and cost-effective design process.

Your designer budgets for your time and plans their workload around your projects (within the limits of the retainer package), giving you their undivided attention. You experience peace of mind knowing your projects are a priority while focusing on what you do best — running your business.

Take a deep breath. Relax. Grab a cup of coffee. The graphic design team at Caffeinated Design Studio has your back.

I can’t even begin to explain the impact that having easy access to a designer at Caffeinated Design Studio when we need one has made on our marketing. Projects are done faster, campaigns attract more attention, and our outreach has tripled. Best investment I’ve made all year!

Deborah Carmichael, Kids Coming Together


Companies of all sizes that invest in design are investing in increased audience mindshare, attention, and engagement — all of which lead to increased revenue.

When you run a business, graphic design is not just for making things look pretty; it has a major impact on your bottom line! Eye-catching, brand-forward graphics clearly communicate your message to a distracted audience, and simple, beautiful design is subconsciously perceived as better and higher quality.

In fact, a recent study discovered companies that emphasize design in their marketing strategies outperform the ones that don’t by 200%!


How many hours do you need?

We provide you with a set amount of time, ranging from one to 10 hours each month, that can be used to design and create your brand assets (plus any communication and minor project management needed to complete your tasks).
