London Institute rivalry.

Don't know who these people are, but they emailed me.

Dear Reader,

A public service announcement from influence us now!

DID YOU ONLY GO TO LCC BECAUSE YOU DIDNT GET INTO CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS ?

Actually, nope.

That this question is still relevant, is pretty funny.
It's interesting that St. Martins still trades on a reputation fostered decades ago.
I grew up wanting to go to St. Martins, but by the time I could I realised it's not a great place.

I made my choice based upon the usual stuff:

+ facilities
+ tuition
+ theoretical/practical balance
+ workshops
+ projects
+ studio space
+ library
+ collaborative opportunities
+ job opportunities

And I'm still sure I made the right choice. It might be more fashionable or bankable or conversational to have studied at St. Martins, but I prefer learning things.

no!!!
way!!!

who are these mysterious idiots i wonder? the question really isn't relevant anymore - everyone knows st martin's is a joke except maybe if you're after fashion. it's the complete antithesis surely to the open source / socialist design movement right?

this is ridiculous, i can't believe they had the nerve.
