    Lot's of companies in Hong Kong currently are realising design is important. Nathan mentioned a government subsided tech scene but its not as strong as what most counties in Europe have (especially when combined with arts and design).

    The pay is not good, but often (and in my case all the time so far) you've had express control over the direction of design. Which is great. The absolute worst for HK is the work culture - its not 9 to 5 we joke, but 5 to 9. You'll get very extreme requests and deadlines and be expected to do considerable unpaid overtime. So you get a lot of creative freedom, but not much actual freedom :p
