About Smudge Design Co.

With over 20 years of design experience, my portfolio contains an award-winning collection of print and online projects. Working with clients from around the world, I've developed a proven process that ensures my customers get exactly what they are looking for. Part of this process is working on a limited number of projects in order to give your business my undivided attention.

Integrated with client involvement and marketing research, Smudge Design creates innovative design solutions that speak directly to your target audience.

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 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, that's because I decided to name 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.
