“I worked with Sam on my company rebranding recently, a project I was dreading, but Sam made the whole process incredibly easy and enjoyable. Sam is a true ‘creative’ and has this unique ability to be able to ‘get’ what it is you are looking for (and I am a tricky customer!) producing work of a very high standard. She isn’t afraid to guide you in different design directions and explains exactly her thought process in doing so. I would highly recommend Sam and would be very happy to work with her again!”

“Sam undertook a complete rebranding of CQA International Ltd including design of a new website, complete redesign of stationery, business cards and brochures. We are delighted with the results and service and would recommend Mad Marketing to anyone considering using Sam’s services”.

“Samantha was the key person in the design of my current website. Her creativity was boundless. From the initial discussions we had I could never have imagined how delighted I would be with the finished product. She listened to what I wanted and then took it beyond my expectations. Her use of colour, photography and carefully selected texts contributed to a website that I am certain no dance school has ever seen. Nothing was ever too much trouble and nothing escaped her creative touch”.
