About Us

Meet the pack!  We like to have fun around this graphic design studio, such as playing fetch, chasing cars or barking at any squirrel that dares to scamper on by….well, at least Mia does – our newest head of PR here at Sniff Design. The humans on the other hand make sure we stay on top of normal day to day pet related design tasks. But occasionally, it’s amusing to join in chasing cars…even if it means getting really odd stares.


Bonafide Dork, Cheeky, Artsy, Workaholic

Monica’s passion and love of animals and graphic design, gave way to creating this ‘pawesome’ little pet design atelier: Sniff Design Studio®.

When she is not taking the lead here at the studio, you can find her reading, drawing, watching sci-fi movies or obsessively taking pics of her miniature dachshund (wiener dog).



Head of Public Relations – Mr. Max, Ladies Man, Gentle, Late Husband

Max was one of the most warm, sweet and loving little dachshund we’ve ever known. He was a true gentle man in all ways. He would let Mina eat first. He would always keep guard of her. He would also be the 1st one who greeted all guests with pure excitement. Max, passed away suddenly in spring of 2014 and when he left; he took our hearts with him.

Late husband to Mina, beloved companion and willing partner in crime. Forever missed. Forever loved.

Code Ninja, Programming Buff, Savvy Fox Smart

Lana has been known to spend endless hours on the computer…and that’s just for fun. Even more ‘pawsome’ is that she is a true code guru; whose work, determination and reputation is unparalleled.

When not being held prisoner here at Sniff Design, Lana can be found pursuing Tutsplus, binging on Netflix, gaming or simply at home serving snuggling her four cats.

Head of Public Relations – Ms. Mia, Princess Woobie, Fluffinator

Mia, our in-house puppy is so sweet that after meeting her, you may have to go on a diet.

Mia arrived here at Sniff Design in December of 2015. Mia is a 1.5 year old wired haired miniature dachshund (SQEAL!). She is also a rescue from Florence Humane Society.

Mia is a lively, delightfully playful and very very intelligent puppy who has become our newest muse. Mia’s name in Hebrew means beloved. It also means ‘mine’.

Best of all? She looks just like a Jim Henson Muppet and we think she may be part Ewok too.

Ms. Mina, Ankle Ninja, Sassy, Muse, Princess

Although small in size – Mina was force to be reckoned with and equally as big, was her loyal heart and love of food.

Mina diagnosed with an aggressive form pancreatic cancer in early November of 2015. After only a few weeks her mom was forced to make one the most difficult decisions and decided to have her put to sleep. She passed away while in her momma’s arms. Everyone who dared to visit Sniff Design, would ask where the armor was – so that they could battle the ‘dragon’.

She was so amazing. Late wife to Max. Beloved companion and willing partner in crime. Forever missed. Forever loved.

In homage to Mina & Max they have a cartoon modeled after them. Yep, these two have their very own dachshund cartoon we created to mock pay tribute to all of their antics.
