JUSTIN FERRELL
FELLOWSHIP DIRECTOR – STANFORD DESIGN SCHOOL

 Justin joined the Institute of Design at Stanford University — aka “the d.school” — to launch and direct its fellowship program, a project-based accelerator for restless experts who want to transform their industries. The program helps entrepreneurial professionals learn and apply design thinking to organization design, to create and spread behavior-driven systemic change. Since its launch, fellows have started or advanced their own systems interventions in areas including international development, food sustainability, philanthropy, K12 education, disaster relief, financial services, legal technology, federal workforce collaboration, cancer prevention, creative culture in large corporations and clinical care for low-income communities.Justin is also directing the d.school’s three-year media experiments project, a portfolio of experiential prototypes at the intersection of digital media and community action. A career journalist specializing in design and organizational behavior, Justin worked for seven years at The Washington Post, most recently as the director of digital, mobile & new product design. He brought the first mobile designers and programmers into the newsroom, and enabled collaborative teams of reporters, editors and developers to create groundbreaking work. A prolific visual storyteller, Justin designed the investigative series “Angler: The Cheney Vice Presidency,” winner of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize for National Reporting, as well as four other Pulitzer finalists.Justin teaches Stanford graduate courses in design thinking, creativity and organization design. All d.school classes are project-based, and students collaborate with professional organizations. Justin’s students have worked with Airbnb, Dropbox, First Look Media, Google Ventures, SoundCloud and Twitter, among others. Justin also teaches executives at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and has taught in executive programs for Aalto University in Finland, EGADE Business School in Mexico and Massey University in New Zealand. He has spoken on creative culture and organizational change in many venues, from the SXSW Interactive festival in Austin; to the Norwegian Research Council in Oslo; to the U.S. Embassy in Dublin; to Education City in Doha, Qatar; and his consulting clients have included the media company Fusion, Hewlett-Packard, IDEO and Citi Ventures. Justin has led many workshops for clients as well, including sessions for Dow Jones, Facebook, Google, Infosys, Knight Foundation, Nokia, SAP, The Aspen Institute, The New York Times, The United Nations, the U.S. Department of State, Univision and the World Economic Forum.
