The Art Of Design
Peter Lynn's parents were both illustrators and artists, his father an Art Director and partner in a design studio. Family vacations were spent painting and antiquing in villages along the New England and Canadian coast. At the age of four, Peter sold his first painting at the well-known Washinginton Square Outdoor Art Exhibition in Greenwich Village, New York City. This eventually led to a B.A. with honors in Fine Arts from Brandeis University and an M.F.A. with a major in painting from the University of Iowa.
Peter began his professional career at LHO Graphics, his father’s design firm. He then worked as a freelance Illustrator / Graphic Designer for a wide variety of clients in the Advertising and Publishing industries. Projects included product, editorial and graphic illustration, developing comps for advertising campaigns and sales promotional materials. Clients include Emerson Electronics, Topps, Goody, Innotech, Cartographers Limited, Zinsser, Skild & Wyse Advertising, Hess Marketing, Panalpina, Tri-State Camera and Watermark Designs.

Clients include The Grand Case Beach Club, Passangrahan Royal Guest House, Orient Resort, Le Bec Fin Restaurant, Cafe Juliana and West Indian Tavern to name a few.
The Digital Canvas
When Peter met his wife and future business partner, Barbara Lynn, she was working at the cutting edge of Computer Graphics Technology. "She introduced me to the world of Digital Illustration and Technology. Soon I was creating everything from digital landscapes to website banner ads." Today, whether painting on canvas or working with digital media, Peter Lynn enjoys any creative challenge. The results are artistic solutions with the level of detail expected on all Lynn Creative projects.
Peter has mastered the latest Graphic Design software such as Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. He is an artist who is just as comfortable exploring the digital environment as he is working with more traditional mediums. He brings a special perspective to the projects of Lynn Creative.
