He served as acting director from 1969 to ca. 1972, and was instrumental in reviving the design program from near failure by creation a computer graphics software program in 1979. Owen assigned his students to design posters using the program, called Poster, which he then printed and circulated to strategic locations as a means of recruiting new students. The posters became recognized internationally for their innovation and design features.
