The Coroflot Design Salary Guide

And the salary guides just keep on coming. First it was the AIGA|Aquent Survey of Design Salaries, followed last week by the Paylandia Salary Guide. Coroflot, the portfolio hosting site, has now released the latest iteration of its annual Design Salary Guide. What makes this different from the others is that the data is submitted by designers worldwide. In fact, you'll need to fill out a short form to submit your own salary information to have access to the detailed results.

New Photoshop Functionality You Won't Have

Or will you? It all depends on whether you're a member of Adobe Creative Cloud. Is you in or is you out, as they say? Because if you're out, you'll increasingly have to watch helplessly as new functionality is added to your favorite image editing app -- functionality which you simply won't have access to, even if you upgraded to Photoshop CS6.

The 2013 Paylandia Salary Guide

We recently had the AIGA|Aquent Survey of Design Salaries showing us how well (or how badly) we were doing. But you had to be an AIGA member to access the meat of that survey. Now it's the turn for The Creative Group, a specialist in the placement of creative, advertising, marketing, web and public relations professionals, to depress... er, I mean, inspire us with Paylandia, which provides an overview of hiring trends, salary info and job descriptions for those involved in design and production, interactive, content development, and advertising, marketing and PR. I know you're in there somewhere. The 2013 guide is available as a downloadable PDF.

The Everyday Side of Design Expertise

When you think of contemporary product designers, people like Philippe Starck or Jonathan Ive come to mind. We've come to see designers as larger-than-life entities, who from some Olympian perch survey the foibles and anxieties of the masses (at least, those with some disposable income) before setting the Chinese factories in motion to crank out yet another disposable bauble. The Fixperts project features a very different side to the practice of design, having as its objective the creation of "meaningful content that showcases how the design process can solve everyday challenges." Solving everyday challenges. What a concept!
