Graphic Artists Guild Survey

Help Us Make the Pricing & Ethical Guidelines Handbook Better Than Ever!

Question everything. And we are – but we could use your help! The Guild is compiling best practices to help creative professionals like you navigate business challenges. Help us help you by answering our updated, easier survey!

Why Are We Doing the Survey?

Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines is considered the industry bible for communication, design, and illustration professionals. Publishing the survey allows us to share average pricing with all members of the graphic arts community in all areas of the country, and we need a large number of responses for it to be adequately represented.

Why Do You Need Me?

The content of the Handbook is created with real-world information from various resources within the graphic arts community, including working professionals such as yourself. Your participation supports the creative community by adding your information to the collective voice the Handbook seeks to embody. The more answers we get, the better our data is, so please SHARE this survey with all your colleagues in the creative community!!

A Special Gift of Gratitude…

When you complete the survey(s), we have some swag waiting for you as a token of our appreciation for taking the time to participate.

A Little History About the Handbook…

The Graphic Artists Guild has been publishing the Graphic Artists Guild Handbook: Pricing & Ethical Guidelines since 1973, and it has become one of the most widely used books of its kind in the industry. Each new edition continues the tradition of providing excellent, up-to-date guidance and advice, incorporating the latest information, listings, and pricing guidelines. Members find it invaluable for its practical tips on how to negotiate the best deals, price their services accurately, and create contracts that protect their rights (including sample contracts and other helpful documents). We are so proud to provide this invaluable resource to everyone in the creative industry!
