Subject: Literature

Question:

Why is it important to study literature?

Answer:

Literature is one of the oldest methods through which people share their culture, politics, philosophy, food preferences, and history among many other things. A lot of oral stories have also been transcribed, extending the reach of literature further. Studying literature allows people to rapidly grow a better understanding of their own people, foreign peoples, and especially peoples of the past that can no longer be heard from any other way. Connecting yourself to the others broadens your own ability to communicate your thoughts, beliefs, and desires to others.

Subject: Digital Media

Question:

When creating a piece of digital media, such as a video game or visual experience, what's the most effective way to ensure the project is moving in a good direction and at a steady pace?

Answer:

You should work in iterative cycles where you create or modify an aspect of the project, then test or screen the project with people seeing it for the first time (or at least who haven't seen it in a long time). Repeating this steps will generate important feedback which should be mapped over the course of the project. Identifying trends in the feedback shows both how frequent the experience is developing (seen by how much feedback differs from cycle to cycle due to changes made) as well if the project is moving in a healthy direction (seen by whether feedback tends to be more positive or negative from cycle to cycle).

What is the most efficient method to organize your layers in Illustrator?

Answer:

It depends on the type of work you're producing: For more artistic renderings, following a a strict foreground, middle-ground, background method where each layer contains objects of the same fidelity and element of the rendering will allow for quick and easy edits no matter how far into the project you are. For more technical renderings, following a grouping method in which each layer represents a "class" of objects that represent the same or similar idea and/or have similar transformations they may require will allow for concise editing of a project to maintain details while working at a steady pace.
