RGD confirms partnerships for 2014/2015 National Survey of Creative Earners
In partnership with global creative staffing, recruitment and executive search firm Creative Niche, RGD will launch a new survey of salaries and billing practices for the communication design industry this spring. 


“I believe the RGD Salary Survey’s findings reinforce the value of the professionals who help agencies, studios and other organizations tackle new creative challenges and developments now and in the years ahead,” says Creative Niche CEO Mandy Gilbert. “We are excited to continue our partnership with RGD on this important initiative.”


The Survey will be produced with the support of design partner The Pixel Shop, media partner Design Edge Magazine and print partner Flash Reproductions.


"The CreativeEarners Survey is the preeminent resource for designers, marketers, firm owners and other creative professionals trying to understand the financial landscape of the graphic design industry in Canada" says Tim Smith RGD, Principal at The Pixel Shop. "As design sponsor, we're very proud to play an important role in helping to bring the 2014 edition of this valuable resource to creatives across the country."


Survey participants can look forward to a more interactive, visual and user-friendly experience with the new CreativeEarners survey. 


The last edition was completed by 3,000 professionals across Canada representing the fields of design, art direction, web production, digital, UX/UI, marketing, communications, creative education, strategy and account management. Providing insight into the financial trends facing the national creative sector, the bi-annual survey offers a summary of where communication design professionals see themselves on the professional spectrum - their careers, their expectations and where they feel the industry is headed. 


A PDF of findings from the 2012/2013 Salary Survey can be downloaded online at www.creativeearners.ca in both English and French. An iPad version of the results is also available through the App Store
