Martin Ford

Senior Social Innovator

A trained designer, Martin has spent the last fifteen years helping purpose-led organisations achieve their ambitions. A relative newcomer to TASCI, Martin joins us from his own design practice, where he has worked with organisations who have found themselves at a point of inflection, needing processes and frameworks for better design, collaboration and decision-making.

At TACSI, Martin’s role is to design, facilitate and increase capability in the co-design process. His goal is to design better outcomes for disadvantaged people in our communities, and to help the organisations that TACSI work with flourish with new capability. In the long term, he’d like to shift the system so that these organisations are funded to not only innovate but also deliver social services in Australia.

Outside of work, he loves making things for and with his children – and has even been known to work into the night designing and building elaborate cardboard costumes and interactive decorations!
