Our web site design for Sniff Design Studio has been pinned to a web design inspirational board in Pinterest.

Since we design custom pet business web sites, it’s perfectly natural that this would include our own. We decided to share our custom site on a professional Facebook forum we belong to. Not only did it receive numerous ‘likes’ and positive comments it also got pinned to a board showcasing such sites – that are done via Divi WordPress Theme.  Nifty!

Meet Mia!

Small drum roll please…we’d like to introduce Mia, our new in-house puppy. She is an 8 month old wired haired miniature dachshund. (SQUEAL!) Mia is a rescue from the Florence Humane Society, in Florence, Oregon. She is a lively, delightfully playful and intelligent puppy who has become our newest muse. About a month prior, we lost our other little dachshund – MINA, to kidney failure. Needless to say, it was crushing. It’s also the reason why it will not have a formal news announcement on this page – after all it’s not something one celebrates.

Mia’s name in Hebrew means beloved. It also means ‘mine’. She looks like a Jim Henson Muppet and we think she may be part Ewok too. If you’d like to keep up with her ‘cuteness’ and puppy antics, please come and ‘like’ our Facebook page, where we will regularly be posting all things MIA. Paw-some!

We have a new web site & online store.

We decided that this little site needed a good ol’ facelift, plus some. So, we cleaned up the pages, added in a brand new portfolio that will continue to expand, a whimsical ‘about us’ page, a new custom header with animated sniff clouds made to float on their way about and included a revised and updated ‘treats’ page where one will find some nifty treats to see, read, share and even download. There is much more to this new site – so, take a moment to sniff about.

Perhaps most exciting of all is that we now have a little online store where we will be selling custom and handmade pet design goods that will have a very limited run. These designs will include all of our famous sniff animal mascots as well as new ones. So, dig in and enjoy!

Here at Sniff Design Studio two of our very own in-house employees have a new dog blog created just for them. Meet Mina and Max! Mina and Max are two very cute yet ‘devil’ dachshunds who love to run amok in the studio. Officially their job status is this: Mina (A.K.A. – little alligator), heads up security and Max (A.K.A. – ladies man), is in charge of PR. Our crazed fascination with them has gone so far that we regularly help them keep their blog updated as well as help create fun and various types of (often free), dog themed downloads via their blog.

Mina and Max are also the inspiration and stars of The Funny Bone, a new dog comic strip running in Pup Culture Magazine. This dachshund themed comic strip can also be followed at Mina and Max’s own site. So, feel free to go and sniff them out and while you’re at it, take a moment to drop them a note too.

A unique and popular newsletter LiquidTreat gives a glowing review for Sniff Design LiquidTreat is a weekly newsletter about design featuring everything from the latest events and products to retro icons and household helpers. It’s a real treat to receive. NOTE: This article is no longer archived. So instead here is their original review:

“Animal Friendly Design – Sniff Design Studio serves a unique niche market: What began as a love for both animals and design eventually grew into a full-service graphic design studio with animal clients. Well, not the animals themselves, but the industries that make the lives of pets, wildlife and other creatures better. Sniff has even started selling its own kingdom of animal-themed postcards. And to keep the environment pet-friendly, Sniff donates a portion of its profits to animal rescue programs nationwide. It’s a business model, says the studio’s website: “We want you to know that we believe in action, not just barking.”
