Malory Johnson

Hello! I am a design researcher, social impact designer, and relentless refurbisher working at ELEVEN in downtown Boston. I’ve worked on a wide range on projects from designing hospital systems to rethinking commercial cleaning to conceptualizing smart cities.

Previously, I worked as the Industrial Designer for Design that Matters rehousing established medical technologies for the context of low resource hospitals, globally. This is where my perspective on social impact design was forged.

I carry this mix of refusal to wear rose colored glasses and a relentless optimism for change, to every project that I work on.
