About Smudge Design Co.

Located in Southern California, Smudge Design Co. specializes in premium graphic design services for fine paper goods and business collateral.  With over 20 years of experience and multiple awards, you may have seen some of my creative work featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, and GDUSA. My design specialities include invitations, logos, and packaging infused with an iconic, clean design aesthetic. My goal is to create beautiful works of art, specifically tailored to the needs of each client.

What's the secret to my success? While I'd like to give some of the credit to my mascot "Smudge," it's really about an intense passion for quality design.

Renee Pulve, Principal, Creative Director

Established in 2003, I started Smudge Design Co. as a freelance graphic design business. It has since grown into a full time career that allows me to fulfill the need to create and inspire. If you're curious about the canine influence throughout the site, I named the business after my beloved pug "Smudge" (1996-2011).

Pug Rescue of Korea

After the passing of my pug, I decided to rescue one from Pug Rescue of Korea. As my schedule allows, I also foster pugs from this organization in the hopes of finding them forever homes.
