"When you graduate from Royal College of Art you become part of an international network of creative individuals who have shaped, and who continue to shape, the culture surrounding all of us: from the work we experience in galleries to the cars we drive; from the landscape of our cities to the furniture and appliances in our homes; and from the clothes we wear to the films we watch at the cinema." Paul Thompson
