John Gallagher joins roster of Outsider Editorial
Outsider Editorial has promoted John Gallagher from jr. editor to editor, marking the first addition to the Toronto-based company’s roster since its launch in June 2018.
Gallagher is a home-grown talent who has quickly amassed a diverse reel of high-profile clients and projects between Canada and Los Angeles, including Porsche, Netflix, Samsung, Adidas, Spirit of York, Capital Group and Canadian Down Syndrome Society.
Gallagher’s attention to detail and sound design is evident in all of his work, most notably in his latest Sapporo “East Meets West” campaign with The&Partnership, which garnered him a bronze in craft in the Mick Griffin Best Editing category of the 2019 Advertising & Design Club of Canada (ADCC) Awards. The campaign also won bronze at the Epica awards in the Branded Content Series category.
Goh Iromoto, the director of the Sapporo campaign, said, “Every time I work with John he’s always returned a first edit that’s been crafted with care, great rhythm and creativity. I love how I can trust him to come back to me with an edit I know I’m going to like on the first cut.”
Gallagher has also been active in Canada’s short film and music video scene. His latest film Dziadzio (director Aaron Ries) was selected to premiere at TIFF and went on to play worldwide. In 2017 his edit for Emily Haines’ "The Fatal Gift" (director Justin Broadbent) launched in Rolling Stone alongside the track.
