Up and Down

I first subcribed to this podcast years ago. Listened for a while then unsubcribed because the host kept putting down formal education in design. He was also childish, not in a fun/funny way but in an attention-seeking way.

A couple years later I heard that an artist I admired was a guest on AID so I listened, felt like maybe I should give it another chance, and re-subscribed.

I listened for another year or so but gave up and unsubscribed again. I just can't get past Mark's biases. By his own admission most of the artists he admires are people who drop out of school - and he admires them primarily because they're dropouts and not in spite of that fact. Why? Choosing to enter school and then leave isn't a positive feature. You can like their work in spite of them droping out but to elevate that as the reason for the admiration is concerning.

Mark started one episode by calling a college diploma a piece of paper, a common term used by those who are self-taught. A college degree in Graphic Design means you've made it through a formal cirruculum, learned to take critique from your professors and peers, and have an understanding of the history of the craft. These aren't bad things and to have them repeatedly dismissed just took away any desire for me to listen to another AID episode.
