Fail Safe

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

failsafe

“Several years ago, Steve Heller asked me to contribute to a book titled: Design Disasters: Great Designers, Fabulous Failure, and Lessons Learned. In thinking of the myriad failures I had experienced over the course of my life thus far, I decided to write about my biggest failure of all: my complete lack of belief in pursuing my original dreams.” — Debbie Millman

The effort resulted in a stunning and personal visual essay that was then featured in Debbie’s book Look Both Ways, and as a commencement speech at San Jose State University.

Now, in it’s fourth reincarnation, Debbie’s thoughts on Failure can be viewed in a fully-synched audio/visual experience by clicking here<<
