Winning Failed Designs

The sad part of designing is that things you love tend to end up on the cutting room floor. Not because they are bad, but because they aren’t right for that particular project. Sometimes they find a second life in a future project and other times they just sit around in my folders looking dejected. No longer! Now a lucky few get to sit on my blog (this might not be a crazy bright future, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers).

They may not be winners, but I love them anyway.
