Community driven design pay transparency from Asia and beyond
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 don’t talk about pay openly for designers; The unique mix of gender, business, culture, education, immigration, and even family affects the dynamics of how we perceive this as something not meant to be discussed publicly, particularly in South East Asia.
So I’m embarking on this personal project to democratise data and help you gain insights into the market to empower you to start having an honest conversation about pay.
We can't address inequality unless we see them. So it's perfectly healthy to talk about it. The more we share, the better we all are.
Curious about how you stack against the market?
Find out about it by sharing yours anonymously. Sharing your pay will help others get a snapshot and understand how the market perceives designers' roles.
Gain a snapshot into the market and see what the real designer’s pay looks like.
Crowdsource materials and links that can help you with your job search.
Here's a bunch of resources and links that I collate with the community's help. It covers anything from salary guides, negotiation, books, or articles that loosely cover the topic around pay or career.
