Waseem Jafar came to America in 1980 to study architecture. To pay his way through college, Waseem worked at a color separation and retouching studio, simply because it was on his way to school and allowed flexible hours. He became interested in the art of retouching and eventually opened his own studio, Nimrod Systems, in 1993. Over the next seventeen years, Nimrod built a reputation as one of the premier boutique creative retouching studios, staying on the leading edge in a constantly-changing environment, never losing sight of the principle that quality endures. With the increasing level of complexity that today’s visuals demand, it became obvious that Nimrod needed to morph into a bigger studio. Palinopsia quietly opened its doors in 2010, and has been building on the success of Nimrod, focused on the exciting work of CG and motion while encompassing the expanded capabilities that Nimrod offered... exactly the way Waseem planned it when he interviewed for the part-time job in 1980!
