how we got here.
The compass points in four directions; North, South, East and West, harkening back to sailors and ships traversing the stormy seas on their way home from a long journey. The compass holds meaning for a traveler, being a symbol for guidance, the ability to point you in the right direction. What's interesting is the Latin root behind the word itself. Compass is derived from “corn,” meaning “together,” and "passus" meaning “way” or “route.” North correlates to adaption, creativity and infinite possibilities. To us, North symbolizes trajectory and goals. Fitting for the adventurer, no?
Orange comes from our love for the “City of Oranges”, Redlands, CA. Everyone has a place or time that has influenced their journey. Redlands has been both the time and place for most of us at North and Orange. A place where we built our careers, we met our significant others, a place we bought our first home, times that have changed us and moved us forward.
North and Orange was founded on the principal of putting people first. We are here to encourage intelligent risk by designing great consumer experiences that are cohesive and meaningful. We have worked hard to create a culture of consumer advocacy through developing sustainable strategies that are scalable and BIGGER than you thought they could be. You are here for the same reason we are; to grow, learn and succeed. Let’s find your route, together.
