I knew some local designer there,
normally the college graduated student salary is start from 1500RMB/month (about 200 USD)at Shanghai. some experienced designer who had promote to manager their salary is about 4000-8000 RMB/month.
all of my firends backgrouned in graphic design are not paid well in shanghai.middle leveld designers 4000–10000RMB after tax and only 3000 for 1-2years expirenced desiners.
that’s the payment for local desiners. if u can bring the theam something fresh, you can ask for more.
PS. if u worked for the real estate company the salary is much higher but
toooo much overtime works.
