It has to work on all levels to be successful, and results are what Kristine is after.

Ryan West, Art Director
For Ryan, one of the coolest aspects of the work at Orange Square is that strategy comes first — perhaps an odd thing to hear from a designer who can’t wait to dive into color, typography, and imagery. It only makes sense — and the end result more rewarding — to chart the right course before designing. The other highlight (and an unexpected one at that) of this work is continually learning about new products, new services, new ideals — something almost always unrelated to graphic design itself but that needs to be understood thoroughly before strategizing and creating effective and memorable visual solutions.
As Art Director, Ryan is responsible for handling all stages of a project, from initial design concept through final production, which also includes client communication and art direction of photography and illustration. Ryan delivers strategic and innovative design solutions noted for their fresh, approachable, and creative focus.
Ryan is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design with 10 years of experience in visual communication. He is also the recipient of two Rebrand100 Global Awards for the rebranding of Holland Engineering and New England Research Institutes among other industry awards.

Lynn Kettleson, Copywriter, Public Relations
Lynn’s life is the written word — finding the single, simple, correct word to communicate exactly what you mean in a way that will stick with the audience. Whether in long form or short, those words must create images, emotions and action by the target audience in order to be effective.
Thousands and thousands of words ago, Lynn began his career in the news business, first as a reporter and editor at The Patriot Ledger in suburban Boston. He then moved on to The Boston Herald where he was the business and financial editor. Twenty-five years ago, he moved into public relations at one of the largest independent public relations firms in Boston.
He has worked with clients ranging from Locate in Scotland to Bank of Boston, John Hancock, and Putnam Investments. He has extensive experience in the health, medical and life sciences area. Clients there include McKesson, PPD, Bausch & Lomb, BASF Bioresearch, Boston Scientific, Brighman and Women’s Hospital, DanaFarber Cancer Center, Winchester Hospital, Exeter Hospital, Wellpoint, Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Massachusetts, Advanced Magnetics, and Vasca.
