The first poster printed in the Analog Research Laboratory said “Done is Better than Perfect.” It was followed closely by “Move Fast and Break Things,” and “What Would You Do if You Weren’t Afraid?”. A series of posters soon emerged. The idea behind these posters was to try and capture the passion and ideology of Facebook and package it in a way to make it less abstract and more tangible.
Shortly after we got the lab up and running and started putting out posters, people all over the company started contacting us with ideas for new posters or projects. Instead of doing it for them, we invited them to come make posters themselves, and we offered classes to show them how the process worked. This has become one of the most popular team activities at Facebook, and we host demos every week.
