Web Designers: Stand Up and Be Counted
A List Apart, the online magazine run by acclaimed firm Happy Cog, is conducting a comprehensive survey in which all "people who make websites" are invited to participate. The ALA staff hopes that the results will help to bring the loosely organized web-design community into sharper focus.
Composed of no more than 37 questions, most of which are multiple choice, the survey is constructed for quick and easy use. Topics covered include job description, job expectations, professional aspirations, skill set, geographical location, work habits, income, and designers' experience of ageism, sexism, etc. on the job.
Leaving your name and email is optional, but anonymous participants aren't eligible to receive randomly awarded prizes, among them a video iPod and a free ticket to an ALA-sponsored design conference in the continental U.S.
The survey will be open until May 22, and findings will be published sometime after that date on A List Apart. After taking the survey, you can leave feedback for the ALA folks, who hope to make this an annual event.
