Is a Form monthly retainer right for you?
Meeting the creative / design needs of your business can be tricky. If these needs vary throughout the year, arise unexpectedly, or you have ongoing needs for design services that don’t require having a designer on staff, a creative retainer might be the perfect solution for your business.
What is the Form Retainer Program?
Our retainer program is a monthly agreement between your business and ours that allows you to contract us for as few as 5 hours of service per month. Our monthly retainer gives you instant access to our full suite of professional creative / design services minus the overhead and residual cost associated with having an in-house designer or design team.
What are the advantages of our monthly retainer?
By entering our monthly retainer agreement, you can take advantage of all of our creative design services at a discount from our a la carte service rate. The more hours you commit to, the lower your hourly rate is. With our retainer program, Form reserves retainer time exclusively for you, so even if you have rush work, or an unplanned need, our creative staff can respond to your needs immediately.
For multiple small projects, you can take advantage of the combined work volume and avoid the need to seek estimates, manage multiple contracts and pay multiple invoices. Our creative retainer can stabilize your monthly services budget.
What services are included in our monthly retainer?
All of our creative services outlined in the previous pages are included in the monthly retainer as well as our a la carte services. If you have a specific need outside of what we list, we are happy to help!
Hours in excess of the monthly agreement are billed at the retainer rate.
What services are not included in a creative retainer agreement?
A creative retainer does not cover expenses like printing, stock photography licensing, and subcontractor fees. Our Creative Director will consult with you before beginning work to identify any fees or costs that may be billed in addition to your creative retainer agreement.
Will I receive an accounting of my hours?
Each month, Form will prepare a report that shows all of the time we’ve spent on your projects.
You create your retainer package by choosing the number of monthly design hours.
Form offers packages ranging from 5 hours to 40 hours per month at discounted hourly rate. Contact us for more details
