Founder and Lead Designer

Line to Line Design is a relatively new product design company based in San Francisco, CA.  We specialize in product innovation and product design.  Our founder, Scott Sullivan has a Bachelors of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Vermont and a Masters of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and Product Design from Stanford University.  Scott is a registered patent agent (#33,126) and has over 27 years experience in Patent Law working for 17 years at Darby & Darby, PC, one of the top Patent Law firms in New York City.  Scott ran the Washington, DC office of Darby for several years during which he worked at the US Patent & Trademark Office daily to conduct patent searches, prosecute patent applications and conduct Examiner interviews.  Scott has gained invaluable product development skills while working at IDEO, a prestigious and world renowned design firm head-quartered in downtown Palo Alto, CA, and also learned much of the retail business while working for nine years as Senior Product-Development Engineer at a 4 billion dollar home furnishing company.  For 31 years, Scott has been actively pursuing his own inventions and holds about 40 US patents with over 15 currently pending.  He continues to develop and realize many more inventions and enjoys helping nascent inventors understand the process, some tricks in the trade, and some potential hardships.  Over the years Scott has developed a unique skill for innovating features for the products being developed.  These features often lead to patents that provide meaningful protection for our clients to the newly developed products as they are introduced to the marketplace.
