🚀 Mission

Democratise pay data and provide insights to empower people to start an honest conversation about pay to shape a fairer and more transparent design industry.
We aim to promote transparency and empower designers to talk honestly about pay.
In many parts of the world, including South East Asia, discussing salary openly can be seen as taboo due to various factors such as gender, business culture, education, immigration, and family background.
However, sharing pay information can create a more equitable and fair industry.
That's why we're embarking on a personal project to democratise data and provide insights into the market.
Furthermore, we want to empower designers to talk honestly about pay and make informed career decisions. So join us in our mission to promote transparency and create a more equitable future for all designers.

💸 Contribute

We can't address inequality unless we can see them. So it's perfectly healthy to talk about it. The more we share, the better we all are.
