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<<

Heads up to our friends in the UK and Europe: Kleenex has just launched new packaging across its full range of products, designed by Sterling! The designs are being ushered in with the launch of a new product, Kleenex Sensitive, for those of us in need of something softer.
The clear and vibrant new packaging was chosen following trends research in order to offer consumers a stylish product. The result is an improved shopper experience, with an aisle that is much more engaging and simple to navigate, and a stylish product that consumers would be proud to display both in their homes and when they’re on the go.
The new packaging is slowly being introduced in the UK, and will soon be available in markets across Europe.
