Willo Perron

Willo Perron

For over twenty years Willo Perron has been pushing culture forward, lending his creative touch to the most innovative brands and artists. Perron is an interdisciplinary storyteller taking as much inspiration from the street as from the museum. He designs a subculture for each client by listening, observing, and synthesizing a unique visual language that encompasses every experience from concert tours, costuming to typography.
In the early 2000s, Perron was commissioned to lead the design of American Apparel’s retail experience. For the stores he drew from postmodern Italian architecture to adorn readymade materials in pop colors. After successfully managing the fastest retail expansion in history, Perron was recruited by Apple to work on an early prototype of the Apple Store. Never a fan of corporate life, he quickly decamped and met Kanye West while traveling abroad. Initially enlisted for a potential retail venture, Perron's role quickly evolved to building and designing all of West's creative output from album packaging to videos to tours. Simultaneously, Perron worked with Lady Gaga merging the theatricality of queer nightlife with high fashion to create a universe that propelled Gaga to the top. Since these high-profile victories, Perron has continued to design and direct for the most pioneering music acts such as Jay-Z, Florence and The Machine, The XX, and many others.
In 2010, Perron established his design office Willo Perron & Associates in Los Angeles.
