how can we improve the graphic and web designer working condition in mauritius

i am still thinking n wondering if it will b a time wen we designers of mauritius will b treated as designers of the rest of the world...(in term of salary)

its very sad that we r not yet considered as designers like in other countries even if we have international standards... why there is not an organisation protecting us designers of mauritius...

This is a problem not only in mauritius but in many other developing nations. I come from Hungary and we often talk about such thing on the propono hungarian design forum. You should setup an site where you can gather all the concerned parties, discuss how you want to do it and start forming an organization. You can change the situation. But don't wait for anybody to do it for you. Do it yourself.

there is strength in numbers. it's scary to start something all by yourself, so i agree with ivan, start a forum, start a site, start the ball rolling. when you have other likeminded individuals, it is much easier to get results.
