East Coast Vs. West Coast

To be honest, I didn’t know there was a culture difference between east and west coast designers (well, stereotype wise anyway). I suppose, only knowing east coast designers, I assumed we were all just in a certain subculture together. But I mean, the east cost designer description sounds pretty spot on, I don’t know about west coast though.

Even if the whole stereotype of each designer isn’t hard fact, there is still a lot of really interesting information on this info graphic, for instance the information on the design schools. And the top 10 cities for designers, I was really surprised to find out that there are two in Texas, DC was 9, and New York didn’t even make it on the list. (Though I’d be interested to know the criteria.) and that we live in the aria with the highest concentration of designers, and the district that pays the best by far. So yeah, it seems that I might pick staying in DC over New York. Go figure.

    This was so interesting because I want to work in California in the long run as a designer. I always thought i would fit in more with my personality. Based on this infographic, I definitely fit in more as a Californian designer.

    Though I don’t agree with some bits of this infographic (pretty sure not all east-coast designers listen to Lady Gaga), I think east coast and west coast designers are different. At the very least, east coast designers usually are more fast paced and like to get things done quickly. West coast designers usually take a slower route.
