As we continue our new year of creative work in earnest, taking on new clients and a raft of new projects, TintypesDigital is very pleased to announce the addition of a new member to our team: JD Selig, web developer, technologist, photographer, musician, writer, linguist, and teacher. JD, in short, combines a prodigious set of talents. It’s a rare thing in our age of hyper-specialization to meet a true polymath, but for a small agency such as ours, operating at the intersection of new digital media technologies and creative expression, it’s exactly the right combination.
John’s talents, as noted, are by no means limited to the realm of pure technology. While at Harvard, he also served as an Executive Arts Editor of The Harvard Crimson newspaper, wrote news copy and served as Lead Anchor, News Host, and Arts Correspondent for the WHRB campus radio station. Meanwhile, in the IT group, he graduated from taking support calls to serving as Multimedia Liaison and Graphic Designer.
John’s linguistic interests (he’s a student of French, Latin, and Japanese) took him to Japan on several occasions, and in 2007 led to a stint in Tokyo as recipient of Harvard’s prestigious Reischauer Fellowship.
Since graduating, John has continued to teach in the Extension School at Harvard. He has also worked as a freelance web developer, photographer, videographer, and recently joined Boston University as an Instructor at their Center for Digital Imaging Arts. Throughout, he has continued to develop and advance his creative technology skills. He’s fully versed in Adobe’s Creative Suite, fully comfortable in Windows and Linux environments, and has significant experience with audio engineering and video production on the Mac OSX platform, holding multiple “pro-app” certifications.
TintypesDigital is delighted to welcome an associate of John’s caliber on board.
