Make Mistakes (please, you’re designed to)

The twitterverse is all abuzz today about Fab’s “Make Mistakes” poster and tee shirt.

I wanted to take a minute to try to clear up a few things about this.

  1. Make Mistakes is a very common phrase. It’s one of our favorites here at Fab. I’ve been saying it for years. It’s one of our company mantras.  I actually got it from our CTO, Nishith, who has this on his wall in our Pune offices.

  2. @Mike_FTW is upset that our Fab Make Mistakes poster may have some resemblance to his. To be honest, we never saw his or even heard of his before we put ours up on Fab today.

  3. I’ve tweeted to @Mike_FTW suggesting he call me or email me to sort this out. 

  4. At Fab we believe this make mistakes stuff; but learn from them and adjust quickly. Yo Mike!  Here’s what we’re going to do. Let me know your favorite charity. For every $1 of profits from selling our Make Mistakes poster or tees on Fab, we’ll donate $2 to your favorite charity. We’re not in this for the money. We believe this Make Mistakes stuff. We live it every day here.  jason@fab.com.

Smile, you’re designed to.
