The mark of a good designer is one who fails often. Hear from local veteran designers as they discuss their favorite failed projects. Explore challenges, share wisdom, and find encouragement with a community of designers who also fail.

Why we started Failure x Design

Navigating failure is a crucial component to be a good designer. We are partnering with local designers as they share insights from past failed projects and model how to give & receive productive feedback from their peers. 

Our Format

We’ll hear from 4-5 speakers for 15 minutes each. Presentations consist of a 5-minute project overview and 10-minute panel discussion, during which fellow designers will explore why and how the project went wrong, and how it could’ve gone better.
