In January 2015, Enzyme Technologies (Pty) Ltd approached Sam at Origamii to design all our marketing material (including, banners, pamphlets, posters and business cards) for an exhibition we were attending at the CSIR in February. Sam’s attitude towards the task was professional, very enthusiastic and she always kept to her word getting things done in a timely manner, which is a rare attribute these days. We found her not only very efficient, but she had this amazing ability of distilling our research into a succinct graphic format that effectively showcased our work and we are certain that the visual and written communication skills composed by Sam contributed to our company winning the prestigious award as being the Most Innovative Project at the event. Considering her incredible talent, Sam is very well priced in the industry and she certainly saved us a lot of money in the design of our website, as all the branding and graphics had been done already.
Sam’s role within our company is to control our overall look and feel, a task which she performs impeccably. As a designer she is top drawer – Sam is a huge asset to our business.
We launched our brand “Bespoke Designs” in February to coincide with our first appearance at Decorex Durban 2015.
We felt we needed to attract high end clientele and therefore called on Sam to create our logo and font.
Needless to say that we won Best Kitchen and Bathroom stand 2015, a mean feat considering it was our first show. We attribute our success to Sam, her passion for design and her drive for excellence and her attention to detail.
Our business has grown from strength to strength. We do not advertise but because of our exposure and re-created brand we are dealing with the cream of the crop in the design industry. Word of mouth and brand awareness has paid off.
With branches in 4 countries across Southern Africa, CPM is a major player in the Jewellery Manufacturing & Refining industry. Sam understands our company inside out and consistently delivers work that nails the brief first time. Working with her saves me so much time and gives me peace of mind that our image is being handled expertly.
Before we hired Sam our image was letting us down…Now our image reflects our business – vibrant, dynamic and colourful.
Sam has on many an occasion given valuable input to our marketing and branding strategies – her out-the-box thinking is refreshing and a winner for Team CPM.
Our annual calendars which Sam designs is not only one of our key marketing products but CPM is well known for its very striking and attractive calendars. This certainly plays a huge part in portraying CPM as trendsetters in the market.
I brought Sam from Origamii in when I needed edgy design for my third album; an experimental rock project called Light In Cages. Sam quickly understood the intention of the brand, and knew how to capture the atmospheric feel I was going for, taking care to really listen to the heart of the music. Each step was achieved with thought and meaning.

“Sam Eades is one of the most creative, innovative and efficient designers I have worked with. Her attention to detail and, most importantly, her uncanny ability to sum up the essence of an entire enterprise/brand/operation/company in a single logo, have made her one of the most valuable assets to the marketing campaign of the Kearsney College Choir. Through her outstanding and creative work, we were able to present a professional, unified portfolio to prospective donors and corporate investors. This design thread was carried through to all aspects of the choir’s business, from concert programmes, album covers, information leaflets, folders, fundraising materials, stationary and business cards. If you are looking for a designer who is willing to go the extra mile to ensure the end product is the best it can possibly be, I would not look any further than Sam Eades.”
Sam Eades is one of the most insightful creative people I have had the pleasure of working with. She gets to the heart of what you and your business/ product are about and has a unique ability to translate this onto paper. I have worked on two large projects, and several smaller ones with her and would, if I could, hang a framed portrait of her on every street corner. I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending Origamii for commitment and money well spent.
