About the Movie

At a time of unprecedented global challenges, the under-30 “millennial” generation has every reason to be fatalistic and disengaged. Yet in fields ranging from public health to education, plenty of millennials are engaged. Call it the empathy revolution. Extreme By Design brings this revolution vividly to life by capturing the experience of 40 students from Stanford University’s Institute of Design (aka the as they create products that may save thousands of lives in Bangladesh, Indonesia and other developing countries they visit. The students apply the freewheeling “Design Thinking” approach, tapping previously undiscovered creativity and draw on methods from engineering and industrial design, and combine them with ideas from the arts, tools from the social sciences, and insights from the business world. Believing that they can and will make a difference, the students open their hearts and brains and remarkably, almost magically, their products take shape and work.

Customer Reviews

Inspiring and Informative

I was lucky enough to see this movie at a Stanford University screening before it was released. It’s fast paced, engaging and entertaining— and it’s a fantastic starting point for anyone interested in understanding design thinking. This is a must for anyone who doesn’t think they’re a creative person.


Saw this at the Angelika Center in Manhattan. Loved it! Opened my eyes to a whole new world of design.
