When a business is looking for new, creative and inspiring ways to visually present their brand they often seek the help of the most innovative graphic design professionals. They need someone who is as driven and committed to the success of the business brand as they are. Someone who is adept at understanding objectives and meeting them successfully. Tiffany Y. Burnett is a Graphic Design professional in Boca Raton Florida with the knowledge and expertise to deliver the desired results.
Born and raised in New York City, Tiffany spent her entire childhood and adolescence around media. Her early inspiration was the extravagant billboards which gave her a fervent passion for graphic design. She believed that one day, her work would be displayed among the lights that illuminate 42nd Street. After graduating high school, Tiffany enrolled into Nyack College where she earned a B.S. degree in computer science. She also landed a job at the school, where she spent the next several years as an Administrative Assistant, eventually also becoming an Adjunct Professor. As an Administrative Assistant she created, printed and distributed print media advertisements such as flyers, posters, newsletters, and programs for events throughout the year. As an adjunct she taught Yearbook Development and Publishing, creatively encouraging her students to produce new ideas, concepts and designs. It was at that time when Tiffany began to consider again, a career in graphic design.
Graduating summa cum laude with a Masters Degree in Graphic Design from Digital Media Arts College, (DMAC) Tiffany is no stranger to hard work and accomplishing goals. Her discipline and dedication to the craft was rewarded immediately as she began work as a graphic designer for a major company within days of receiving her degree. In time she was able to return to her alma mater as an adjunct professor. In her current position as Graphic Design Coordinator at Florida Atlantic University, she conceives, creates and coordinates all visual elements for the Division of Student Affairs Marketing and Communications office.
Tiffany realizes the value of connecting with the right people and letting her voice be heard. She recently took part in a Break the Silence Project, which is an international mail art exhibition that encourages woman to address local, national and international concerns. (Her work can be found on the Rosenthal Gallery website, Fayetteville State University.) She has held memberships in the Delta Epsilon Iota, Honor Society and The American Institute of Graphic Arts. She served as an industry trends consultant for curriculum development on the Professional Advisory Committee at DMAC. While doing these things she worked at obtaining proficiency in applications within the Adobe Creative Suite: Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Bridge, and Acrobat. Keeping up with ever-evolving technology is essential to any good graphic designer; Tiffany’s latest certification in the Fundamentals of Digital Marketing was achieved November 2019.
Today, Tiffany continues exceeding her own expectations, not only as a graphic design coordinator, but also working as a businesswoman, and mentor. Her passionate ambition is to motivate young people for generations to come to accomplish their goals and make a difference. It is about excellence in pursuit and presentation and Tiffany embodies this concept in her own branding strategies.

SUBMIT THE DOCUMENTARY
Won a contest to design a t-shirt that middle and high school students couldn't wait to put on. The concept was to promote Anti-bulling. The T-shirts were distributed to all ages across the world in promotion with the "Submit the Documentary" Film which gives solutions to the trend of cyber bullying. As the t-shirt traveled with the company and partners, they were distributed to schools, communities events and conferences to support their own Anti-cyberbullying or Awareness days.
