Everyone has a story to tell. Design is not your story, but it can give you a voice.

Wandering Crow

Wandering Crow is the alter ego of Perry Kibler, formerly Unleashed Creative (unleashed.io). After an extensive career with traditional design studios, I started my own studio in 2003.

It was great for a long time; I got to work as a freelancer for other agencies working on big accounts like Ford, Microsoft, and Qwest (the phone company that handled most of the west back then), but I also got to work with some amazing non-profits and startups.

In 2017, I joined Amazon full time as a Senior UX Designer.

Design is taking a complex subject & distilling it

I started design in the world of print, evolved to print + web, and now use various other design titles like UX, UI, and product designer with an amused sense of irony. What I do from day to day hasn’t changed much: design is just a philosophy of minimalism. It can be telling a story or just making twisted paths seem straighter, but in its own small and humble way, design aims to make life just a little better.

Portfolio

Some of my favorite work from over the years. My work ranges from branding to UX. All the work below was designed and executed by me unless noted otherwise (such as some of the pre-existing logos).


Photography

"You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved." — Ansel Adams

Writing

Just some opinions. I haven't figured out my own life yet, let alone other people's. So these aren't essays on how you should work, they're simply illustrations of what works for me.
