Fail Again, Fail Better (Tenacity is a Designer’s Best Friend)

Designers (and I include myself in this) are arrogant enough to look around the world and think, “I can do better.” Because the universe loves balance, designers’ hubris is kept in check by their failures. And all designers fail often. But the trick that every great designer knows is that this failure is the key to progress. It is completely OK to make mistakes so long as you never make the same mistake twice. If you’d like to hear a better design pep talk, check out what Ira Glass says about producing creative work.

Fail Again, Fail Better was created by Sara Shin, David Bauer and Mike Ko during their summer internship at Blind.
