Art used to be about sketching still-life arrangements and painting landscapes and portraits. While fine art still exists, technology has enabled creative imaginations to be brought to life. Over the last few decades animation and illustration has advanced dramatically. Take a look at The Simpsons for example, in 1990 everything was in 2D, but you only have to take a look at recent episodes to see the dramatic changes in the animation and illustration world.
If you are aiming to build a career in the creative world, animation and illustration provide plenty of exciting job opportunities. Film and television production are one option, along with creating characters and scenes for video games, books and media advertising.
Could you be following in the footsteps of past students or leading animators such as Hayao Miyazaki and Jonas Mosesson? They are commissioned to work on music videos, interactive advertising, promotional campaigns, comics and special effects.
Where do Animators and Illustrators work?
Our animation and illustration graduates have gone on to work for television broadcasting companies, publishing houses, design agencies and animation studios. Some are working for leading brands, while others are freelancers.
The starting salaries can be quite low, however, as you gain experience and build your reputation, the opportunities and pay will expand accordingly. Never forget that as an animation and illustration graduate, you also have the perfect tools for self-promotion!
