I was honored to not work with Circles Conference on their design work, but also speak (and later return for a panel and a workshop). My talk was called Destination Process: Lessons Learned by Giving it a Go. In it, I suggested we celebrate our awful first drafts. By celebrating these embarrassing attempts, we give ourselves permission to fail. When we’re brave enough to fail, we can take bigger risks and make better stuff. By applauding the first drafts, we’re giving the entire process a purpose and we can share our journey along the way.
I also had the pleasure of creating the conference tees and totes. Below is a mix of conference swag and slides. Click here to read more and watch the full talk.
