Fishbowl users report ACD salaries are between $110K-$190K, with an average of $160K in major cities, like New York and LA. Salary range is affected by city, agency tier, award wins, and years of experience.

I’m 31, art director ACD but wanting to be a film maker and photographer. I know I’ll have to give up a full time salary at some point. Is it too late to go to LA and start from scratch??

Is there a big difference in cost of living between NYC and LA? Moving to LA for a job and want to ensure my salary expectations are in the right ballpark.

I currently make $130k and my rent (shared with my partner) is $2950. We already own a car together so we already have that in our world of monthly expenses, and would be road tripping out there over the course of a month.

Also, I’ll be jumping from ACD to CD, going from media company to small digital agency.

hey, fishies! i got a dilemma. would you take an offer that’s $5k less than your desired salary range/expectations? (e.g. you say your range is $115k - $120k & they come back with $110k). but also this would technically be a $5k cut from your current salary, which is pretty much maxed out for its current title/salary band.

HOWEVER, i’d be moving from a midsized agency to a very prestigious agency, which also covers 100% of your healthcare premium AND deductible…
