Architecture and Design article – Australian designers earn less than national average salary
This article in Architecture and Design today reviews a recently released report by ADA member the Design Institute of Australia.
“The Design Institute of Australia (DIA) has released the results of its latest Fees and Salary Survey, which was carried out in December 2013 and sought to find out how much Australian designers are worth.
Delivering a detailed picture of average incomes in Australia’s design profession, the survey was sent to architects, design educators, and designers in a range of industries including fashion, textile, graphic, exhibition, interior, furniture and industrial.
The results indicate that while the number of designers and design graduates in Australia is growing, the median incomes for self-employed designers and consultancy owners continue to shrink.”
