On The Bluff Studios

On The Bluff Studios is a project of Academic Technology Services, a Division of Information Services, and supported by the Office of the Provost and the Vice President of Operations. OTBS is a student run multimedia design studio that has a focus on academic content. The projects can range from supporting instructional media to small marketing initiatives.

"Through the production of media, it is our mission to provide university departments with the tools they need to enhance the experience of faculty, staff, and students alike.”


“On the Bluff Studios” was created by Samuel Williams (Director of Academic Technology Services) as a way to meet the growing demand for quality academic multimedia assets.  In September of 2015 the team came together for the first time.  The team brainstormed and came up with the name “On The Bluff Studios” and designed the two logos that will represent the group.

OTBS will provide valuable experience in project management, time management, teamwork and multimedia design.  OTBS will maintain the IS motto of: We Listen, We Care, We Respond.
