FULL SAIL UNIVERSITY

Hailing from the land of the Three Rivers, Sara Tinnick is a graphic design superhero who uses knowledge to thwart typographic tyranny and catch color-space criminals. By day she is a mild-mannered college instructor, trading in her cape for business casual at the Bradford School. She believes a solid foundation in graphic design history and theory, combined with sound technical skills, will help students fight graphic design misdeeds. Sara began her graphic design crime-fighting career in 2003 at Seton Hill University. After graduation, she worked as a design professional in Pittsburgh before returning to the classroom as an educator. As the primary instructor for her college level program, she has been responsible for program content, technical advancement, and student development. Sara hopes to continue to fight the good fight by remaining an educator and focusing on curriculum development that combines graphic design, marketing, and social media. Sara is currently a grad student in the Media Design MFA degree program at Full Sail University.
