Where have all the Digital Designers gone?

27 May 2019 Mark Abbott


At the moment I’m spending my time recruiting for an awesome opportunity. We’re after a Lead Digital Designer for a leading agency.

The only issue is most Designers I know have moved into UX. Generally due to the contract rates being paid and the volume of work that is out there. This change in the market has left a big hole in the visual designer landscape, making them even harder to find in the local market.

I would be interested to hear from any Designers that have made the move over to UX and why. Even more interested to hear from Visual Designers that have decided to stay put!
