Fail Better Talks

A London-based talk series on design blunders


Projects credited in


It's daring to take risks in design, and talking about them when it all goes pear-shaped is even more ballsy. Our monthly symposium gives voice to 4 intrepid speakers; students, tutors and working designers to speak candidly of the worst work they've ever created and, more importantly, what they've learned from it. There's no greater hindrance to the creative process than a crippling fear of failure, so let's crush our trepidation with a series of hilarious anecdotes, a touch of schadenfreude and lots of laughter. Fail Better advocates more risk taking in design. After all, what is the worst that could happen? You could end up being one of our speakers. Want to get in touch? Shoot us an email at
