David Feldman is the founder and creative director of 3 Owl, a brand, web, and content agency that creates nimble identities, elegant technologies, and beautiful tools that equip clients for success.
An accomplished guitarist and music-lover with an entrepreneurial mindset, he graduated from Emory University’s Goizueta Business School with a unique dual degree in business and music. He has since dedicated himself to supporting and growing Atlanta’s booming creative community.
“Atlanta has an exceptionally collaborative and imaginative culture,” he says. “I love this community, and I love how Atlantans come together as partners in our city’s unfinished creation.”
From 2008-2012, David was the business development and marketing director of Alliance Biomedical Research (now VitaLink), a clinical research firm founded by his father, Gregory J. Feldman, M.D. He rebranded ABR and helped grow the company into one of the world’s largest privately owned networks of clinical research sites.
David founded 3 Owl in 2015 with a team that includes some of Atlanta’s brightest creative professionals. The award-winning agency has helped build the brands and digital experiences of major Atlanta-based organizations including Mellow Mushroom, Mizuno USA, Emory University, and Center Stage Atlanta. Now a team of eight, the agency has already won many prestigious awards for brand identity, graphic design, and website design.
3 Owl is also the branding and design partner for ATL Collective, a nonprofit David co-founded to enrich Atlanta’s music community. The organization brings musicians together to perform live covers of classic albums at venues all over Atlanta. He is now the vice president of the organization’s board.
David is a frequent guest lecturer at Emory’s Goizueta Business School, The New School (Atlanta) — of which he was a founding faculty member — and General Assembly.
