The Vida Agency has doubled in size since the start of the pandemic as demand for their multicultural marketing services centered on the pursuit of racial, social, and environmental equity continues to increase.
Seattle, WA – The Vida Agency (TVA), a full-service multicultural communications company specializing in reaching diverse audiences for greater cultural impact, hires Justin Haight as Senior Web Developer to meet an increasing demand for web services. The new role follows a series of recent expansions to the TVA communications, media relations, research, and community engagement teams renowned for their deep fluency in the nuances of cultural competence and work with diverse and traditionally underserved communities.
With the development of more than 200 websites under his belt for a range of public agencies including Sound Transit, Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), Seattle Public Utilities and many more, Haight brings a wealth of experience to the TVA team.
