The 2016 Design Census is partnership between AIGA and Google. It grew out of the annual AIGA Salary Survey and recognizes the need for open source data about designers, for designers. It is supported by numerous design organizations including IDSA, IXdA, SEGD and Ico-D, the NEA and many design schools.
One statistic that came out of the design census report was on job satisfaction. It states that 80% of all ethnicities all genders in all locations at all seniority levels at all types of all sizes of people in all industries are happy with their job. 20% are not.
I LOVE MY JOB I HATE MY JOB
The AIGA design census data about job satisfaction was compelling: 80% happy and 20% not happy. We wanted to present this statistic with a simple typographic image that showed both numbers equally as important and interrelated.
