Britain’s creative industries could soon employ more people than the financial sector

Thanks for posting the link Gareth.
Good to read something positive in the media! :)

Jonathan Kestenbaum, chief executive of Nesta, says, ‘Today’s figures point to the creative industries, and specifically the talent we have nurtured within it, becoming a key driver in the UK’s recovery from recession.’
Thanks Greg and Chris, Chris your right - but I think its both positive and negative for us designers, but over all positive.

I think many more business are realising that good design can set them apart, communicate to their audience and it has a very important part to play within business in general.

Seems pretty logical. Everything is automated in that sector, and everyone is losing their jobs with the financial crisis. You can't tell a computerto read the client's mind and visualize it.
^Kinda... Photoshop is getting bigger and easier, and there are still lots of people going around either:
a)Thinking that it's done in 5 minutes... "just photoshop it".
b)Have a little kid in the family with photoshop who "can do it".
But the bigger businesses, yes. So overall, good thing! ^^
