The thrill of victory the agony of defeat. We're not talking about just any failure. Design failure. So public. So humiliating. How do designers who are really, really good (we swear!) turn a disaster into a triumph? Read this book and find out, as dozens of top names reveal the heartbreaking-and sometimes hilarious-mistakes they have made and talk about how they were able to grow from the experiences. Self-delusion, overcommitment, procrastination they’re all here. Poor communication, missed deadlines, enraged clients yes, they’re here too. Read Design Disasters and weep? No! Read Design Disasters and be inspired to find the silver lining in even the cloudiest situation.
