Founder + Principal | Openbox
Marquise Stillwell, the founder and principal of Openbox, created a company that represents a culmination of more than 20 years of experience in designing and implementing fresh models for businesses and cultural organizations. The Openbox vision is, above all, human-centered: focusing on improving the lives of people in the communities its clients serve, whether it is through a film project; extensive business design work; or its deep resources for design research and innovation.
Marquise also brings his passion for supporting diverse cultures and bringing about positive change to his many philanthropic and creative activities, from serving as a board member for the Lowline Underground Park; to collaborating with his Openbox colleague Petter Ringbom on short films and feature-length documentaries; to teaching with two Danish design schools: CIID in Copenhagen and the KaosPilot in Aarhus.
He also serves as a board member for the Center For Healthcare Innovation and board adviser for the Andrew Goodman Foundation, and supports arts organizations such as the Joyce Theater, MOCADA in Brooklyn and the contemporary art museum MCA Denver.
