Since 2005, Douglas Campbell has been a community organizer, event producer and experience designer on the west coast of the US. Over the years he has drawn inspiration by twisting together the unexpected, co-creating such projects as: MindshareLA, mixing ideas and mischief to stoke inspiration; Syyn Labs (which eventually evolved into Two Bit Circus), blending artists with engineers to spur creativity; and The Tuxedo Travels, one of the earliest social media projects to combine charity with adventure. He’s also consulted with clients, ranging from Google to the Getty, to help them create memorable brand experiences.
In 2015, Douglas was hired by Cross Campus, a prominent Los Angeles coworking company to help them launch their 2nd and 3rd locations, in Pasadena and DTLA respectively. Since then, he’s taken a break from city life and been restoring a wilderness retreat center called Trillium as well as working with other communities to create legal and financial models for communal land stewardship. In 2019, inspired by that experience, he completed his first book, “The Motorcycle & The Molecule“, an adventure novel that explores alternative communities in the U.S. and Central America.
In 2020 he launched Rogue Media, a lightning fast, digital design agency that specializes in crafting clear, easy-to-navigate, and simple-to-update websites. When he’s not working remotely on projects via his off-grid satellite connection, he’s backpacking to remote lakes, snowshoeing through the wilderness or just floating down meandering rivers in the summer sun.
