Yale Shaw

Industrial Designer

Yale Shaw is an industrial designer and earned his master’s degree in industrial and product design at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California. In 2015, he won an international award for his design of a life-saving epinephrine auto-injector. In addition to creating a smaller, sleeker design to help eliminate social stigma, his innovative device can trigger its smartphone-integrated application to notify 911 emergency services of the user’s exact location, allergy susceptibility, and personal information.

“Without the eight years of Destination Imagination that allowed me to conceptualize and build in a completely raw and creative environment, I don’t believe I’d be accomplishing the things I am today.” – Yale Shaw
