Tiffany Brooke Gaines graduated from NYU in 2012 with a degree in Social Entrepreneurship, and is happy to be continuing her education in the inaugural class of the DSI program at SVA where she is refining her design, strategy, and communication skills. Tiffany kick-started her life as a graduate by becoming a Corporate Innovations Consultant for Hyatt Hotels, helping them re-imagine the hotel experience. Since then, she has designed multimedia communication strategies for clients in the beauty, food and beverage, and event-planning industries. Tiffany believes that every problem that we face in the world is a chance to discover, design and attain more preferable conditions. Her goal is to ascertain how societal problems are generated through the flawed products, services, and systems that we interact with. Then, redesign them so that they better suit humanity. While studying towards her MFA, she has started her own business, Lovabiliy Inc., designing products to promote female empowerment and safe sex. Lovability condoms are now available in beauty supply stores, lingerie stores, and accessory boutiques, (LovabilityCondoms.com). Other social interests of hers include community design, and nutrition education. Tiffany is a Licensed Real Estate Agent, has experience as a professional Disney Princess, and often dreams of the sunny weather in her hometown, San Diego, while watching the snow flurry out the window of her apartment on the Upper West Side.
