The Big Apple is one of the most expensive places to live in the world, which makes this design internship tool developed by designer Barron Webster more than just a ledger for public praise. The tool, which is available through browsers, keeps a running tab of design firms and other companies that pay design interns $13.65 per hour, the living wage in New York City.
London, New York, and other big cities tend to be central hubs for creative work like design, and yet those cities are consistently the most expensive in which to live. While this is just an inconvenience for people with established careers, those starting up in the industry can struggle to make ends meet while working internships with paltry pay — or no pay at all. Barron Webster's design internship tool helps to mitigate that scenario.
