Douglas Schaller is an industrial designer by trade. Most recently, he was the Design Director at Butterfleye, but has also consulted with corporations and start-ups such as Promega, HTG Molecular, Hive Design and LucidCAM to design their products, refine their initial vision, and make their products manufacturable. He's helped these companies not only on the product side, but also with their business and branding structure.

While in school, he had multiple internships with Bay Area company Lathrop Engineering and another internship with the Legrand Design Group in France, as well as freelance and consultant work.

After leaving Accel Biotech to start his own company in 2013, more recent projects and clients have been diverse and spread in many different fields. Douglas has designed products ranging from: lighting and environment home control, industrial equipment, server and rack mount systems, consumer, recreation and sports, and the cycling industry.
