For a five month duration, FISK founder, Bijan Berahimi, served as the first Designer in Residence at the Facebook HQ in Menlo Park, CA. Berahimi thrived in producing daily visuals to stimulate culture and creativity among the company’s employees. He was proactive in producing posters, books, installations, and community based initiatives.
Social networking through print making
The Support Report
The Support Report book which came out of Bijan's residency in 2016 is a testament to the importance, meaning, and resonance of kindness, empathy, and inclusion — of people supporting people.
These installations in EPIC cafe and MPK 20 represent the culmination of this project and a monument to the community’s individual pledges of support from across our global offices.
Facebook Collage Club
A weekly Collage Club hosted by the Analog Research Lab as a social hour of personal expression, material exploration, and artist discovery.
During his residency Bijan developed a collection of wonderfully diverse, sometimes provocative but always interesting work. His most lasting mark may be a genuine, thoughtful and engaging book entitled The Support Report. – Scott Boms
