Charleston Creative Makes An Impact
Now these are some good looking numbers. A new Creative Economy study for Charleston, SC is out, and once again it shows the huge economic impact the creative industries have in our region (2012 numbers). Some of the more impressive facts include…..26,465 creative workers, representing the 4th largest employment cluster, paying 21% higher than average hourly wages, and adding more than $3,200,000,000 to the region’s total economy. That’s “Big Creative” for you.
We enjoyed the opportunity to create a series of illustrations to support the Creative Study. Props to LDubs here at Blue Ion for her fine work.
Many thanks to the Charleston Regional Development Alliance and the Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce’s Center For Business Research for commissioning and completing the 2013 Creative Economy study…and to New Carolina for the continued support of Charleston Parliament and our creative industry.
