The 2017 Design Salary Survey Is Officially Live, and We Need Your Help

2017 is officially in full swing! For some of you, that means you’re just starting up at your new job, and for others it means embarking on another year of a job you either love or hate. If you happen to fall into any of these categories, we need your help! Since 2001, Coroflot has collected and reported salary information from tens of thousands of design and creative professionals around the world. We’ve been able to do this with the help of our community, who we rely on to enter their own information. The Design Salary Guide is a valuable resource for your own salary negotiations or as a resource when building your team.

The Salary Guide offers plenty of benefits. For starters, it’s a rolling tool, available year-round and reporting the results in real-time. We have a pool of over 65,000, with useful data on dozens of job titles from around the world. Our range includes over 50 job titles, so there’s something for every creative role! All of the data is collected on a city level, allowing us to report results on a more granular, hyper-local scale (in addition to broader trends). You can even enter freelance hourly rates, and in turn we report on freelance hourly rates. We collect and report on salaries and hourly rates in local currencies around the world. Our charting tool shows the 25th percentile, median, and 75th percentile of earnings at all times. If we have enough data, we split it up into more detail. Any data you submit is completely anonymous, so there is zero risk in completing the survey.

Built by designers, for designers, Coroflot has always had a strong community of talented creative-types. We invite you to take a peek around and add your info to the Salary Guide. It literally takes less than 1 minute to participate. The more data we can collect and summarize, the better accuracy we’ll have. And of course, share it with your friends!

Keep your eyes peeled for Salary Guide news as we’ll have more exciting tidbits to share in the coming weeks.

Enter your data by March 14th to receive Coroflot’s annual report on design salaries.

IDEO’s Online Course on Design Leadership Begins Next Week

Which do you think is harder to teach: Design, or how to lead a design team? I think it’s got to be the latter, as in addition to your own crazy you’ve now got to manage other people’s crazy. I’ve started reading Ed Catmull’s “Creativity, Inc.: Overcoming the Unseen Forces That Stand in the Way of True Inspiration” to learn more about it.

For those of you seeking more than a book on the subject, IDEO is offering a course on design leadership starting next week. IDEO CEO Tim Brown is presenting “Leading for Creativity,” a four-week course, through their online IDEO U portal starting on February 22nd.

Leading for Creativity teaches approaches that empower individuals and teams to search for innovative solutions. You’ll learn how to break down a bold vision into actionable challenges; make adjustments to culture by designing rituals and space; and guide teams into the unknown through the process of experimentation. Tim Brown, along with some of IDEO’s most experienced leaders and inspiring creative partners, will help you unlock the potential of your team or organization.

Here’s the pitch video:

In terms of time commitment, it requires roughly three hours a week—one to watch the content, two to execute the assignments and mingle in the community forum—for four weeks. The course runs $ 599 and you can get more details on it here.

Review: The Automotive Design Episode of Netflix’s New Design Series

I’m absolutely thrilled that Ralph Gilles was chosen as the subject for the auto design episode of “Abstract: The Art of Design.” Partially because I knew so little about Gilles beyond his work and his reputation, and partially because he’s that rarest of designers—a business-savvy one. (Gilles got an MBA from Michigan State in the early 2000s.

As for that reputation: Since graduating from CCS in 1992, Gilles was snapped up by Chrysler. He was subsequently promoted to Manager within the design office, then Senior Manager, then Director. By 2008 he was VP of Design, then Senior VP; By 2009 he was President and CEO of Dodge. 

Following the merger with Fiat, Gilles was promoted in 2015 to Head of Design, Global, for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Involved early in his career with Chrysler’s groundbreaking 300 and later the Dodge Charger, among other models, Gilles now overseas the design for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Maserati and Ram.

Series creator Dadich does a masterful job of unpacking Gilles’ fascinating backstory while following along with the high-stakes venture unfolding on camera: Gilles leads a team to develop, against the clock, the radical SM-1 concept car to be presented to FCA boss Sergio Marchionne. If greenlit, the SM-1 could literally be the future of the company.

The sheer pressure of undertaking such a venture is unique to the auto design industry. To develop an entirely new car from scratch can cost a billion dollars and take five years. The car must continue to look fresh throughout the first three to six years of its service life, meaning Gilles and co. are essentially trying to design for 11 years into the future.

As with the footwear design episode, there’s plenty of eye-candy on show here, from Gilles at Italy’s famous Mille Miglia race poring over drop-dead gorgeous vintage Italian exotics; pursuing his track passion back home with an SRT Viper; and Gilles and the design teams’ sketches and full-scale mockups.

Among other illuminating moments, Gilles covers how cars transcend design and impact society, moving into the realms of tastemaking and pop cultural consciousness, as well as spawning communities of enthusiasts around particular models. And he reveals his own inner conflict with the inevitable rise of autonomous cars.

Some of the things you’ll learn about by watching this episode:

– Game-changing auto design history tidbits

– Why “interiors have become the new battleground” between brands

– Automotive designers, too, have to deal with Jimmy-Kimmel-worthy Mean Tweets

– The letter he received from Chrysler as a 14-year-old boy that later changed his life

– Why he watched “The Dukes of Hazzard” religiously

– The challenges of designing for Millennials

– What an auto design crit looks like at the corporate level

There’s plenty more, of course, but I don’t want to spoil the viewing. In addition to the look behind the curtain, I found the human aspects of this episode very compelling. With that I’ll say no more and encourage you to go watch it.

(This is not a paid plug for Netflix, but I feel I must point out, as I would to any of my friends, that Netflix is offering a free one-month trial. Plenty of time for you to check this episode out without having to commit to signing up. Watch it, you won’t be sorry.)

Creative Package Design: Stacy Park’s Accordion-Box Sewing Kit

In London, the Royal Ballet School is linked to the Royal Opera House by this structure, known as the Bridge of Aspiration:

When Stacy Park was a design student at Pratt Institute, she was given the assignment to “choose a brand and design a sewing kit for the male consumer keeping in relation to the brand image.” The brand she went with was the RBS, and she took the Bridge as inspiration for the form. Here’s what she came up with:

Threads, needles, scissor, patches, needle threader, safety pins, and all the basic necessities for sewing are included for emergency situations. The design concept was taken from the Bridge of Aspiration which connects the Royal Opera House to the Royal Ballet School. The delicate twisted shape of the bridge reflects the flexibility and gracefulness of ballet.

Nice work, Stacy!
