A short film documenting the work of Analog Research Lab Designer in Residence, Steve McCarthy.

I’ve had the immense pleasure over the last couple years helping lead the invitation-based Designer in Residence program in the Analog Research Lab. This program has provided a meaningful path to open our doors to different design and creative communities, giving designers access to various processes and offering them opportunities to experiment, explore, and push the boundaries of ideas and work into new territory.

Simply put, new designers = fresh and diverse ideas and observations about us and the world.

Designer and illustrator Steve McCarthy is no exception. During his residency in Dublin, Steve thoughtfully and gorgeously illuminated the often hidden or ignored movements and motions of individuals and teams whose work makes them some of the real unsung heroes at Facebook.

You can find more of these short films on the Analog Lab Facebook page including ones for Ryan Floyd Johnson, Kaye Blegvad, Trevor Finnegan, Monica Garwood, and Frances MacLeod with new ones coming each month. Enjoy!
