Ruff Designs Opens Doors in Georgia

ATLANTA Ruff Designs has opened for business in Kennesaw, Ga.

The design and marketing boutique said it plans to provide “cost-effective, creative, strategic marketing services.”

The shop was founded by four family members who have experience working for agencies such as Burrell Communications Group in Chicago. Christine Mugambi, agency founder and president, said it took four years to conceptualize and develop a strategy to launch the new business. She added that her goal is to become a top design studio with the “best prices in town.”

The shop’s current clients include BlueSky Exhibits in Marietta, Ga., All Magazine in Athens, Ga., and Windward Athletic Club in Alpharetta, Ga. Mugambi said RD targets small to midsize companies and offers graphic and display designs, illustrations, public relations and marketing communications.

“Our focus is to tap into our clients’ DNA and find strategic ways to help them reach their communications objectives,” said Mugambi.
