Patrice Martin is a Practice Lead at IDEO where she focuses on systems design to create meaningful human experiences. She works with clients to address large-scale social change through solutions spanning the private, public and social sector.
Martin's experience at IDEO has ranged from seeding innovation in clean water in the developing world, envisioning new approaches to low-income housing, to rethinking blood donation in the U.S., where she currently leads the American Red Cross relationship. Patrice has led projects and project teams in healthcare, financial services, hospitality, workplace and education with clients including The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Mayo Clinic, Stanford University, Nike and Marriott International. Patrice's role has shifted and grown since joining IDEO in 2004.
Her experience began in human factors and brand strategy and led to an exploration of spatial experiences, designing for community, and now focuses on the impact of design in social innovation. Before joining IDEO, Patrice worked with SonicRim, a design strategy consultancy where she led contextual research to understand the social, emotional and cognitive issues that inform new product and service innovation.
