Like many other colleges and university, art school is a buffet of multi majors with many sound-alike fields that can be confusing, not to mention how it can differ from campus to campus. What is graphic design? How does the illustration curriculum look compared to animation or sequential art? Are interior design and architecture the same thing? So today, some of us from the Studioblr Collective would like to help to shed some light on the matter of majors.


  • Editorial Design.
  • Advertising and Marketing.
  • Interactive Design.
  • Motion Graphics.
  • Sustainable Design.

Things To Know: 

Work can happen on any scale: simple postcards to large billboards. Definitely always make sure you are using the proper document size and format. Graphic design is meant to be experienced in an instant. You need to be able to communicate the message clearly and effectively. Always a good idea to sketch out thumbnails first before spending a lot of time creating something on the computer, to only find the design is not effective. Example classes would be Typography, Foundations of Design, Computer Applications, Multimedia Concepts, Photography, Electronic Art, Branding Design, Motion Graphics, etc. You will probably also be taking Drawing Foundation classes the first few semester.

Possible Careers:

  • Brand Identity Designer
  • Creative Director
  • Web Designer
  • Graphic Artist
  • Animator
  • Production Artist
  • Package Design


  • Using a variation of traditional and digital mediums in a concise amount of time to illustrate an idea or concept for commercial use. In the curriculum, you will get to explore an array of tools and techniques without focusing on anything in particular.

Things to Know: 

Despite sharing a lot of elements in common with painting, illustration is more commercial and broad as it expands a lot more into many different mediums, techniques, surfaces. One project you might finishing a children’s book illustration to finding yourself in another project designing fabric patterns. Illustration also divides into many specific branches of work and degree that require technical knowledge such as botanical, medical or animal illustration.

Possible Careers:

  • children’s book artist
  • poster designer
  • pattern designer
  • production artist
  • encyclopedia illustrator
  • Medical illustrator


  • The process of making an animated short or film, Animation is a very diverse major you can choose to be a part of the process as well as the whole thing. 2D animators focus on traditional art skill while 3D animators skills set lean more toward programming and acting.  

Things to Know: 

Usually divided into two different categories that are 2D and 3D, Animation is heavily reliant on collaboration. Depends on the kind of animation being produced you can take part in many different parts of the process. 2D animators are required to take a very different path and learn different techniques from 3D animators.  

Possible Careers:

  • storyboarder
  • 2D/3D Animator
  • rigger
  • character designer
  • background artist
  • colorist


  • Can be crackdown to many different focus/jobs: script, pencil, ink, color, letter (although lettering is now becoming a rare focus thanks to photoshop), editing. Would easily be squeezed in between Animation and Illustration. A lot of time people go to either or when the school doesn’t offer this major but it distinguish itself not just by the product but also the focus.

Things to Know: 

This major has a lot of inking, background study and anatomy classes along with scripting. Some students also dabble in storyboarding, illustration or animation classes as a boost. Like animation, collaboration with peers from other majors is very encouraged. Communication is key. Can be either traditional or digital but basic Photoshop, Mangastudio skills are a must.

Possible Careers:

  • Character designer for game and animation
  • Inker
  • Concept designer
  • Colorist
  • Comic author
  • Storyboarder


  • Creating art in a more tactile method, applying digital and traditional printing methods

Things to Know: 

  • Leans a lot toward tactile learning, printmaking is the study of different printing methods from old time to the current age of different materials such as lithography & bookbinding. It requires a lot of patience and studio time working with different exposures and chemicals as well as a more analytical perspective in art.

Possible Careers:

  • Layout artist
  • book binders
  • printmaker
  • media artist
  • print developer
  • artisan

This list only covers some of the examples but it should provide some ideas as to how many majors might sound similar, but offer different concentration as well as a varied career path.

Taupes and warm browns would look lovely on you qt and they’re nice neutral shades that anyone can rock and are a good place to start if you’re just getting into eye-shadow.

Purples would look qt too but if you’re just getting into eye-shadow start off with browns bae.

Supercomputing reveals centuries of stories, experiences of Black women

Women’s History Month is perfect timing for this story—a story about a quest to reveal the lives and experiences of Black women in the U.S. during the last three centuries. Hear from the group of researchers collaborating and using ‪NSF-funded‬ XSEDE supercomputing to fulfill this quest. Their discussion is on Advancing Discovery, a featured podcast at Science360 Radio:

Above: Ruby Mendenhall, an associate professor of sociology, African American studies and urban and regional planning at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, is leading a collaboration of social scientists, humanities scholars and digital researchers that hopes to harness the power of high-performance computing to find and understand the historical experiences of black women by searching two massive databases of written works from the 18th through 20th centuries. The team also is developing a common toolbox that can help other digital humanities projects. Credit: Brian Stauffer, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Foundation Application: Stippling Brush.

Stippling is gradually becoming a more popular and well known method of applying foundation as it can be used to create an “airbrushed” flawless look.

1. The first step to using the stippling method is applying a small amount of your foundation to the back of your hand or any other container you wish to use. Next lightly dip the ends of the stippling bristles into the foundation, to look something like this:


2. Next gradually begin to lightly dot the product on to the skin like this:

3. Continue to do this in small circles until foundation is blended into the skin. 


  • Don’t treat a stippling brush as you would a foundation brush, this kind of application will not work the same with a stippling brush. 
  • Don’t be too heavy handed and push too hard with the brush, as you will not achieve the same airbrushed look. 


High End Brand: MAC 187, Retails for £29.25 -

High Street Brand: ELF Studio Stippling Brush, Retails for £3.50 -


Although this method can be used with any type of foundation, it works particularly well with liquid.
