So much! Here are some common uses from our existing clients:

  • Creation of adverts that are to be placed into publications such as newspapers or magazines,
  • Creation of graphics or templates for email newsletters,
  • Updating imagery that's used upon your website,
  • Altering graphics/photographs so that they can be used on new collateral (business cards, clothing, vehicles e.t.c)

It's purposefully diverse, so whatever you want designing, be it creation, or altering - we can help.

What's included?

All of the below come as standard with any GEL Studios Design support retainer.

Peace of mind.

Guaranteed hours per month ensures that you know whatever you have planned, or what's around the corner, we have you covered. Dependable, reliable resource - when you need it!

Discounted rate.

To our retainer clients, we offer a discounted hourly rate - the bigger the resource you have, the greater the discount with no change in our service offered.

Set amount.

We track all time, and are completely transparent about where your time is spent. You will never be billed more, unless we've obtained your permission prior.


Building an ongoing relationship is important, that's why you'll only ever have one designer working on your account. Over time, they will get to know you and your business inside out.

Real expertise.

Our award-winning designers are experts at what they do, ensuring that you get the absolute best quality of work available. We don't follow trends - we set them.

Task tracking.

You and your colleagues have your own digital space. Use this space to add in as many tasks or discussions as you wish, whenever you like, and be updated - real time!

How would us working together - work?

We've tried to keep our working process as simple as possible, ensuring that we spend more time doing work, instead of time scheduling it in.

The result? Four easy to follow steps:

  1. Kickoff call,
  2. Add to the board,
  3. Feedback,
  4. Repeat!

It really is that simple!
