Goodbye World of Idents - Hello dotmogo!

Much pedalling has been going on behind the scenes at World of Idents - I have been setting up a replacement stand-alone blog called "dotmogo"

"Why the change?" I hear you ask - well, when I set up World of Idents it was a bit of an experiment - just to see how it would work and if it was popular. Two years later I realised that, although I have many readers, I wanted to open up the remit beyond idents and broadcast graphics and cover animation and VFX as well as the film industry and commercials.

Many people are always asking me about jobs - people that are free to work, or companies that are looking for people, so I realised that I had to have a job board as well as the directory of companies and freelancers.  It's a free service for the next two months, so give it a try

With my new multipage format I can fit more in and cover more topics.

I'm still in Beta stage - so please let me have any constructive critisism - I want to make this the best resource for the UK motion graphic community that I can...

see you at dotmogo

UK Motion Graphic census - last chance

Hi, a reminder that this year See No Evil joined forces with Bran Dougherty-Johnson to get the first UK Motion Graphic Design Census.

Although it asks about earnings - It's totally anonymous. Please, help us to spread this link and get a better view of our industry in UK.
It will only take a few minutes to fill this in and it will do so much for our industry. This census will be closing soon. Take it here

Motionographer (with Bran Dougherty-Johnson and Jake Sargeant) have already done a census for the motion/VFX community in the USA - it's a fascinating read of who gets paid what. You can look at the results of the 2009 US census by going here and downloading the PDF

I had a look at a previous census (mainly US) - and there are some fascinating stats in there, such as average earnings of different levels of designer/creative director etc. As well as average ages and hourly rates. So definitely worth it to see how you compare to everyone else in the industry.
