About Don’t Mind If
Don’t Mind If is an independent ground-up initiative that seeks to understand, demystify and uplift the communication design industry. Run by industry volunteers, it is designed to be a community effort and seeks to put the collective interests of the initiative above that of any one person or group. Meeting on volunteered time since mid-2019, the team comprises creative professionals who share an interest and passion for the future of the communication design industry and community in Singapore. Members of the initiative work across various creative fields as employees, freelance professionals, employers and students of the local communication design industry.
About “Don’t Mind If I Ask” – The Inaugural Report
“Don’t Mind If I Ask” is a book about the lessons we learnt from asking the communication design industry how they were doing. The book consolidates the results of an independent inquiry launched in 2020, which sought to find answers on the wellbeing of industry practitioners through crowd-sourced data. Capturing 506 responses from Employers, Employees, Freelancers, Students and Fresh Graduates of our community, the data was consolidated, analysed and released to the public as a book. You can find out more about the initiative and the book at dontmindif.com/report. It is our hope for these objective industry insights to help us all understand more about the community we live and work in.
