I’m Owen Perry, a professional freelance interactive web designer. For 10 years I've been crafting clean and beautiful brands and websites. A website is often your first and only impression with clients. I believe it’s imperative that it articulates your story clearly, convincingly, and on all devices and platforms. It’s not hyperbole to say that a well-built websites change lives.
From a skills perspective, I’m known for having a keen ability to integrate photography & typography with clean user interfaces and experiences. This combination of skills is valuable to organizations who equally weight a website's visual appeal with its functionality and ease of use.
While web design is my primary livelihood, photography has become one of my most important creative outlets and an increased part of my business model - check out my new portfolio: http://circa1983.ca. Both my web and photography work has been showcased in galleries and public spaces, utilized in ad campaigns for multinational brands and companies, and recognized by influential blogs and magazines around the world.
If you're seeking a creative mind for your next big project, I'd be happy to hear from you. While I usually respond immediately, but please allow up to 24 hours for a reply.

"Working with Owen was a great and positive experience. From the very first meeting Owen understood our brand and our idea and he came up with great designs and development strategies. He listened to our complex needs with patience and brought in his own fresh ideas - we couldn’t be more happy with our new websites and hope to continue working with Owen - but we won’t need a new site in the near future!"
Momme Halbe, Sherpas Cinema
"We are very grateful for Owen’s work designing our new website. He did a great job synthesizing our needs and desires with his own creative touches. The result? A crisp new website that communicates our campaigns and showcases our imagery wonderfully. Owen’s professionalism, creativity, and dedication are truly top-notch."
Ian McAllister, Pacific Wild
“Owen has done numerous projects for me in recent years from major corporate sites to the web site and content management system for my independent record label. In each case he has delivered the highest aesthetic and technical quality. I will continue to return.”
Aaron Holm, Dissolve Records
"Owen has designed and developed three very important websites for our business. All of these sites are designed to easily communicate the vast amount of exciting work our companies are doing as well as make it appealing for visitors to return to the site for fresh content. In the past, these sites rapidly became outdated because of the difficulty of updating content. Both are now also extremely aesthetically appealing – a must in the photo/video industry! Fastashleysstudios.com is on the cutting edge of studio websites with a feature Owen developed to allow clients to request photo/video and production equipment rentals and have their list sent instantly to our team to be able to follow up on!"
Jennifer McClary, Industrial Color
"I've gotten to know Owen very well over the past three years of working together and what he's been able to do for our agency during that time is remarkable. Quite simply, Owen executes. Whether it's a large multi-national company, or a small local project on a fixed budget, he always designs solutions that meet and exceed the client's expectations. He is a design communicator and true creative professional."
Cory Savage, Savage Solutions
"We never thought we could love a website as much as we love ours. Thanks to Owen, who was adaptive, creative, and intuitive, we have a website that perfectly captures who we are. It is rare to find such a talented and intuitive designer - who is both in tune with the latest tech developments as well as a creative and talented artist."
