Tiffany Cox

Tiffany Cox has always had a passion for helping businesses succeed. Growing up and watching her family own and run their own variety of successful businesses has inspired her to help others do the same. Graphic design and marketing has given her the perfect opportunity to do just that!

Even as a child Tiffany was very “tech savvy” and had an interest in a multitude of computer software programs. She attended the Art Institute of Tucson and achieved an Associates degree in Graphic Design with honors.

Tiffany’s first job in design was with promotional products company, Moore Exposure Advertising Solutions. Working at this company provided her with the skills to execute a variety of media, from promotional products like brochures, mugs, pens and even Military coins and t-shirts.

Since then she has gone on to work for two other high-end advertising agencies learning the skills to create front-end design and even the back end of code to help her clients reach their marketing goals.

Today she is focused on her own business Tiffany Cox Design and specializes in conversion based design and targeted lead generation campaigns. Her biggest drive is seeing her clients succeed in growing their businesses through effective marketing and design.
