30 PR and marketing jobs

A creative soul needs the freedom to express itself, and the attached body needs a dwelling that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.

Creative employees—designers, writers, illustrators, videographers and their ilk—are passionate about their work, but their passion and flair don’t always translate to a large paycheck.

SmartAssett combined two key metrics—creative job opportunities and cost of living—to compile “The Top 10 Places for Creatives in 2019.

With just over 110 creative employees per 10,000 workers in the metro area, and boasting the lowest cost of living in the top 10, Savannah, Georgia, topped the list. The most popular creative job in that city is actor.

Here are the top 10:

  1. Savannah, Georgia
  2. Provo-Orem, Utah
  3. Nashville-Davidson-Murfreesboro-Franklin, Tennessee
  4. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Anaheim, California
  5. South Bend-Mishawaka, Indiana/Michigan
  6. Salt Lake City
  7. Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, Georgia
  8. Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington, Minnesota
  9. Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina
  10. Kansas City, Missouri/Kansas
