Help build an economic profile of the national creative industry
English and French versions of the National Survey of CreativeEarners, produced by RGD and Creative Niche, went live today at www.creativeearners.ca.
Why is it important for creative professionals to take the survey?
Completing the survey of graphic design salaries supplies important data which helps define professional standards within the creative industry. This data can be used by all creatives to establish rates for professional services that are fair and competitive.
