Default Salary advice for graphic designer

Hi all,

Currently, I'm thinking of resigning and applying for another company (I'm a graphic designer). Reason being the work is getting very little at current company.

It may sound good but I feel it will do me more harm than good in the long term, as my skills seems to be going backwards rather than forward due to no challenges etc.

Anyway, my current salary is $2200. When I entered this current company, it was $1800, then increased to $2000 and then to $2200 (partly due to good work performance). Been working there for almost 2 years, now late twenties.

1) My question is: when I apply for a new company, should I ask for $2300 for my salary? Maybe put a "(neg)" behind the amt, as in "$2300 (neg)".

2) Anyone knows what's the current average salary range for graphic designers in SG? I heard the lower end ones hover at $1800? Need some insight before I begin.

Pls advise. Tks!
