DESIGN

WE THE UNDERSIGNED HEREBY AGREE:​

That we have been guilty of paying them too little, and keeping them on for too long, using them as a cheap source of labour.

That there is enough stress put on them to prove their creative worth without the additional stress of struggling to survive.

That, given their importance to our industry, we need to look after them better. As of now.

THEREFORE, WE SOLEMNLY SWEAR THAT, FROM JANUARY 2020:

We will pay our interns at least the current Living Wage. Currently £10.75ph in London and £9.30 across the UK.

We will pay them a freelance rate of £100 a day after 3 months of service.
