Our new 2012 salary guides are out and the research suggests that professionals in creative fields can expect average starting salary gains of 3.5%in 2012. Those with interactive skills, such as user experience (UX) designers, are especially sought after as firms look to improve their web presence and transition many of their marketing programs online.

 

Call me to schedule a time to hand deliver a salary guide and I’ll throw in a coffee on me. (I won’t physically throw in a coffee but you get what I’m saying.)
