Owen Gallagher

Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, Ireland

Designer (Web Design)

Member since August 18, 2009

I am an Assistant Lecturer of Design and Creative Digital Media at the Letterkenny Institute of Technology, Co. Donegal, in the North West of Ireland. I have been designing websites since the first dot.com bubble and I've worked in a variety of design related roles for medium to large companies, as well as lecturing at LYIT and the University of Ulster, and gradually building up a growing freelance design business over the past decade.

I hold a Masters Degree in Design and Communication from the University of Ulster, a Bachelors Degree in Design and Digital Media from LYIT and I am currently undertaking a PhD at the National College of Art and Design (NCAD), focusing on intellectual property issues related to the distribution of digital content on the internet.

I am the founder of TotalRecut.com, an online social network and resources website for fans and creators of video recuts, remixes and mash-ups, and a co-founder of OurWritersBloc.com, an online marketplace that connects self-published authors directly with their readers and enables the distribution of content over multiple platforms, including mobile phones and e-reader devices.

I am a husband and father of two beautiful girls and when I'm not working, there's nothing I love more than spending quality time with my wife and kids.
