Milton Glaser on The Fear of Failure

Students from Berghs School of Communication asked leading figures in the creative world to discuss their ‘fear of failure’. Speaking to Creative Review, Berghs student Louise Ljungberg explains: ” We students (including me) are constantly flanked by the biggest creativity blocker of them all – the fear of failure. Therefore we’ve decided that this year’s exhibition theme will be – the fear of failure. The purpose of having this theme is to equip the students (and the Swedish communication industry) with a new perspective on failure.”

Contributions include Wolff Olins, Stefan Sagmeister, AKQA’s Rei Inamoto, Photographer Sarah Moon, Wally Olins and my favourite Milton Glaser.

Creative Review in collaboration with Order posted this film about Mr Smith’s Letterpress Workshop in South London. Great to see a designer working organically with ‘old technology’. His work has a great sensibility about it. Take me back a few years when I did lots of letterpress at college.
