Firstly, thank you for looking at this post.

Me and my girlfriend want to move to San Francisco, we are both Graphic Designers and both currently work at a very prestigious UK agency. There are many great design studios in San Fran and we are hoping that our experience working on global campaigns for Nike and other big clients will help secure us both jobs.

My questions are these:

1.What pay should we expect in comparison to the UK?
2. Should we aim to get sponsership and a job offer before we leave?
3. What is the rental market like? I'm presuming that the rental prices will be no different to extortionate London?!

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks for your time
