The graph below is a “snapshot” of average salaries for those Website Design jobs (UK) that we sampled in June. The average salary for the month was £27.9k .
Our historic data shows that average salaries have been slipping since Sept 2011 (when the average was £29.3k). Design briefs have changed from the early days of the internet when stand-alone, brochure websites looked for lots of “flash”. Nowadays many would say that function, speed and simplicity of use are more important than design however is that really true? In our opinion great design is as important as it ever was. Clever, impactful design that still complies with the rigours of efficient SEO is often a key differential when it comes to standing out from your competitors. The internet is a very crowded place and design can make a real difference as part of your competitive strategy.
For comparison, the data has been set alongside equivalent data for Web Development positions.
