I remember my first class GDES class in AUK, I remember the uselessly long ways of doing things we were taught, or even things that could easily backfire, so to say. One thing I remember clearly, was about retouching a models face, this is what we were taught:

No.. Just no! Is this how they teach want-to-be Graphic Designers? Do they want them to be bad in what they do? Possibly, who knows.
