Dimitry Tetin's multi-disciplinary design practice grew out of his background in ecology, European literature and interest in language. Places and their relationships to the popular American imagination and identity act as an organizing principle for the content and form for the majority of the projects in his experimental publishing practice. He also works independently and collaboratively on publication, web, identity, motion, signage and wayfinding projects for clients in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors.
He is the coordinator of the Undergraduate Communication Design Program. Prior to moving to Austin to teach and do research at Texas State, he was an Assistant Professor in the Graphic Design Design Program at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He also taught as an adjunct at Rhode Island School of Design and Parsons the New School for Design. He earned his BA in literature, ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of Chicago, BFA in Visual Communication from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and MFA in Graphic Design from the RISD.
