We all fail. It's a part of becoming better at what you do. It's about owning your failures which pushes you to try again and eventually succeed. In an environment where feedback and constructive criticism is vital to the success of a design/product, it is imperative for designers to learn how to deal with failure in a positive way. This talk will address these points and provide you with personal perspective into the world of failure, from my own experiences.

Darsh Nand is a Senior UX Designer at GoCanvas, where he supports design and strategy of the GoCanvas native and web platforms. He started his career as a Financial Analyst after obtaining his Master's Degree in Information Technology and Bachelor of Arts in Economics. He quickly realized finance was not something he truly enjoyed and decided to switch careers into design, something he has always enjoyed. Over the last 6 years, he has worked as a UX Designer in adtech, Interaction/Service Designer in government contracting, and UX Designer in financial/banking. He is also passionate about paying it forward by mentoring junior designers and working on freelance projects with them through his own design firm, Dewey Design Labs.
