What happens when creative projects go seriously, weirdly, and hilariously wrong?
Join us at the San Diego Made Factory for an inspiring evening of live storytelling as members of our design community take the stage to explore Design Fail: how our worst projects inspired us to change, grow, and get better at our craft. Together we'll share in the heartbreak, affirm lessons learned, and find wisdom in the words and experiences of friends and colleagues.
