Last year, W+K London designers Freddy, Kelly and Simon hosted a workshop and talk on the W+K ethos “fail harder”, as part of Graphic Design Festival Scotland.

Over two days, the team showcased a rapid, fear-free way of thinking and demonstrated how failing can push your work into untried and unexpected outcomes. The guys experimented, failed hard and resolved 30 impossible tasks ranging from ‘creating a new colour’ to ‘solving loneliness’.

The Book of Failures documents the events of the workshop. If you pop into our Hanbury Street reception in the next few weeks, make sure you take a look.
