What can I expect to earn in my creative career? Show me the money!

Anything from 14k to 100+ k per year depending on how much experience, responsibility and the role… ultimately your career and earning potential is driven by the amount of effort you put in. 

Junior Creatives with 0-5 years’ experience 14k-30k per annum
Creative Directors with 5+ years’ experience 30k-70k per annum 
Senior & Group Creative Directors with 15+ years’ experience 70k-150k per annum 
Junior Designers with 0-5 years experience 14-26k per annum 
Designers with 5+ years’ experience 26-36k per annum 
Art Directors with 10+ years’ experience 40k+

It’s not all about money though, you get to put your name to what could be a concept or project that becomes a household name and not to mention travelling and working with really interesting people.
