The 20 highest-paying jobs for art and design majors

Kathleen Elkins

We turned toPayScale, the creator of the world's largest compensation database, to find the most lucrative jobs for the artistically-inclined.

PayScale found the highest-paying jobs for art and design majors by first identifying the most common jobs for those with a bachelor's degree (and nothing more) who work full-time in the US. They then ranked those jobs by "Experienced Median Pay," which is the median compensation — including base salary, bonuses, commissions, overtime, and profit sharing (but not equity) — for those in any given profession with a "typical amount of experience."

If you want to go where the money is, set your sights on becoming a fashion designer. Chief fashion designers topped the list, earning an impressive $120,000 a year, while senior fashion designers came in second, with an experienced median pay of $98,000.

Here's the full list:
