Welcome Ryan Lesser as Art Director

We’re thrilled to welcome Ryan Lesser to OtherSide as the Boston studio Art Director! Ryan is an industry veteran, having been Art Director at Harmonix for almost 2 decades. A few of us have worked with him before and we consider ourselves fortunate to be doing so again. Fun fact about Ryan: he created the SHODAN key art for System Shock 2! He will help wrap up the remaining art work on Underworld Ascendant, as well as lead the art direction for upcoming projects.
