March Hernes Hebæk

March Hernes Hebæk’s FAILURE-ESQUE is a facetiously frivolous attempt to conceptualize failure. Using conversations with other’s whose felt like failures as inspiration, the magazine use design and typography elements as well as photography inspired by the word failure. Emphasising the everyday-ness of failure, FAILURE-ESQUE thrives to be casual, laidback and honest, questioning our relationship with the word "failure".

"If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style." - Quentin Crisp
