David Douglas Founder & Managing Director, ebow the digital agency
In 1999 David Douglas founded what is now one of Dublin’s leading digital agencies, ebow. He is also founder & Creative Director of ebow, the art gallery.
David specialises in connecting the dots for brands who wish to capitalise on the “digital world” and develop new audiences through the use of online media and digital marketing.
David also owns the ebow gallery; a creative think-tank, housed in a digital marketing agency, that doubles up as an art gallery. At the ebow gallery not only can the public mingle with the likes of Pattie Boyd; but clients get a good grasp on our vision of how any creative digital agency should be: full of activity, change and revolution.
Shows that David has curated and sponsored include Ronnie Wood, Pattie Boyd, Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue by Ken Regan and NYC Street artists Skewville along with TRACES and The Moderns at The Irish Museum of Modern Art.
David has spoken about the world of the digital agency for the Marketing Institute of Ireland, been featured on the front page of Business Plus and written about in the Sunday Business Post for his pioneering work in digital in Ireland.
