THE MODERN COLLEGE OF DESIGN
Owen is an overall creative, driven by a vast passion for design. He is fusing his skills in graphic design with his skills in website development to create attractive, innovative designs to help businesses meet their marketing needs. He is rethinking outdated and cluttered designs, and replacing them with designs that work rather than simply looking “cool.” He works as an intern at Ruef Design while in his final year at The Modern. Whenever there comes a break from college and work, he loves to travel. Favorite trips include exploring Europe while an exchange student in Germany and this past summer’s visit to Aruba. Owen wants people to know him for just being him.
