The 2010 Motion Graphic Design Census is available for download here. Questions were completed by 5,536 individuals in the design and motion graphics industry.
"We still believe that an open, accessible survey of salaries is important in our industry. Recently, some notable visual effects studios have been sued in Federal Court for collusion, and others are now participating in closed salary surveys amongst themselves. As artists in this industry, we want to share what information we have so that we can all gain some leverage in negotiating for ourselves. I hope to continue this survey in coming years so we can build on our base of information."
