Ever wonder what some movies would be like if they were about Graphic Design and not something else? What if “Full Metal Jacket” was about graphic design school?
Professor Hartman: “I am Professor Hartman:, your senior graphic design instructor. From now on you will speak only when spoken to, and the first and last words out of your filthy sewers will be “Sir”. Do you maggots understand that?
Students: [In unison in a normal speaking tone] Sir, yes Sir.
Professor Hartman: Bullshit I can’t hear you. Sound off like you got a pair!
Students: [In unison, much louder] SIR, YES SIR!
Professor Hartman: If you ladies leave my college, if you survive graphic design training, you will be a designer. You will be a minister of design praying for work. But until that day you are pukes. You are the lowest form of life on Earth. You are not even human fucking beings. You are nothing but unorganized grabastic pieces of amphibian shit! Because I am hard, you will not like me. But the more you hate me, the more you will learn. I am hard but I am fair. There is no racial bigotry here. I do not look down on dorks, geeks, nerds or fine art drop-outs. Here you are all equally worthless. And my orders are to weed out all non-hackers who do not pack the creative suite to work in my beloved trade! Do you maggots understand that?”
Students: SIR, YES SIR!
